How to solve the puzzle
-rearrange letters to reveal the word; record the correct spelling
-review the list of words and identify word/s with least and/or most number of letters; fill in the blanks with these words
-locate list words that share common letters and fill in the remaining blank spaces aligning the shared letters
-track progress by crossing off each word as it is identified

Choice board ideas:
-engage creativity: students construct word search puzzles using blank word search grids (see link below).
-encourage innovation: create treasure maps using a landform as the locale (while thinking outside the box): up/around/through a volcano, over hills and valleys, through a fjord (remember to include a legend, compass rose)
-stimulate creativity using multi-media design strategies: engineer and record (audio, audio/visual, hand drawn diagrams, use online/offline resources) construction of 3D model of a landform (student's choice); include color, labels, other relevant information as required
