Are your students constantly asking, "What do I do when I'm done?" or "Do you have any extra credit?"
Do you need something for them to work on quietly after tests, quizzes, or something to keep them busy while a subsitute teacher is in the classroom?
This is a fun way to keep your students and their minds occupied. It takes English skills and Social Studies skills as well to complete the assignment.
4 Letter President Names Word Ladder
Abraham Lincoln's Assassination Word Ladder
A word ladder puzzle begins with two words, and to solve the puzzle one must find a chain of other words to link the two, in which two adjacent words differ by one letter. For example: “Use legs to” WALK “Use mouth to” TALK. Each word changes by one letter ultimately connecting the first and last words together.
This assignment can be used as: extra credit, a FUN assignment for those who finish things quickly, a stand alone assignment on a day after testing or when class might be a little shorter than normal. I have used this assignment with my students and they love it, especially when they can work together in groups and compete against one another.
I have also created this game free for you to use online!
