What is the connection between puzzles and the brain? Here is an ank word family and rhyming words activity that challenges students to discover words hidden in the grid by first solving for crossword like clues.

As the students read the clues, their brain searches for an answer based on their foundational knowledge of this word family. Once they have solved for the clue they then find the word hidden in the grid.

Puzzles make learning more fun because they create an interactive experience for students. Have students work as part of a team, or in pairs, to foster collaboration and cooperation, further consolidating students' understanding as they continue to learn from and with their peers.


Hope that everyone is keeping safe! Time travels so quickly it seems, and here we are coming up to Thanksgiving in Canada and then Halloween at the end of October! Have fun completing puzzles from the Thanksgiving and Hallowe'en collections found here: Thanksgiving Puzzles | Thanksgiving Word Searches | Hallowe'en Puzzles.
