Are you looking for teacher activities and resources to support student learning about the Bible? This word maze puzzle is a word search puzzle where 19 hidden words are linked together to create a maze when their path lines are connected. That is why they are called word maze puzzles.

To solve this fun and interactive puzzle use the following steps:
1. review the list of word clues (this engages the brain for what to look for)
2. locate the circled letter as the starting point (this is the first letter of one of the word clues)
3. trace the letter path of the hidden word (remember path lines can travel up, down, forwards, backwards or diagonally)
4. as the letter path of this word is found, locate the starting letter of the next word and continue tracing its path line
5. repeat steps 3 and 4 until all letter paths are complete (remember path lines can go in all directions and the paths DO cross which adds to the complexity)
6. track progress by drawing a line through each word clue

Other ideas for using puzzles in the classroom include:
- use to introduce topic
- alphabetize the list
- use word clues in literacy centers (narrative writing; descriptive writing; recall events that occurred in the Bible)
- categorize list of words using a variety of criteria (e.g. person/place/thing)
- foster a collaborative and cooperative classroom by having students work together to solve the puzzle
