|Scrambled Letters Puzzle()|
Are puzzles interactive? Puzzles are an innovative way to support learning. Here is an interactive St. Patrick's Day words word search puzzle that requires students to first unscramble the letters in the clues before locating the words hidden in the grid. Because students need to first unjumble letters, their brains are engaged in seeking out common and known letter and word patterns. When students work with peers they interact in a cooperative and collaborative way, which supports each others' learning.
The extra challenge with this puzzle is that some clues have more than one word. The scrambled letter patterns do not necessarily reflect the number of letters in each word.
