Make Your Own Puzzles

The Discovery Channel website is so good to us! Check out their Puzzlemaker site to create your own puzzles-- you can make a word search, crossword, cryptogram, hidden message, or several other types of puzzles.

You can create a puzzle to help students review their academic vocabulary for a test, or have students create puzzles to exchange with each other. The site is easy to use, and the puzzle images can be printed out as-is or inserted into a Word document.
