Unscramble: Tricky and Uncommon Words is an activity to challenge the Gifted. Students unscramble four uncommon words on each page. The first page has four A-words to unscramble: amnesia, atmosphere, antibiotic and alphabetical. The second page has four B-words to unscramble: buoyancy, bumblebee, bystander and bureaucracy. The third page has four C-words to unscramble: chromosome, camouflage, comprehension and cosmetologist. Students work their way to the Z-words: zucchini, zeppelin, Zoroastrianism and zirconium. Students are told which letter the word begins with, but the sequence that follows is the challenge that must be unraveled. This activity will give your students a chance to push themselves, to work their minds in a way that they have never had to before. In this packet you will find 26 printable pages, lesson plans, an answer key, and a blank page at the back so that students can create their own Challenges to share with others.
