St. Patrick's Day Scramble

Why use puzzles in the classroom? Puzzles challenge the brain in an interactive and fun way. Here is a St. Patrick's Day word maze puzzle where the word clues are scrambled. This adds to the fun and brain engagements while supporting vocabulary building. The list of 15 words is hidden in a word search grid. Students must trace each letter path, consecutively, to create a maze within in the grid. The letter paths do NOT cross.

Puzzle fosters a collaborative and cooperative classroom when students work together to solve the puzzle. Collaboration also helps to improve communication skills and team building skills.

4. at the end of the word locate the first letter of the next word and trace its letter path
5. repeat steps 3-4 until the maze is complete

1. letter paths do not cross.
2. help reduce word choice by recording each word as its found.
