Can your students beat the puzzle code and find out at the history of Halloween?

 

Can they also find at least three things about the holiday and tell the teacher before their classmates? It is an task that will get them thinking as well as celebrating halloween in class. It works well simply as a brain teaser for any topic, a bell ringer or an intro task.

Students have to work out the letter/number code and fill in the paragraph accordingly. Four letters have been given already to help start them off. I introduce an element of competition to keep my classes focused. Not only do they have to fill in the paragraph they must pick out at least 3 key facts and be the first to tell me as the teacher.

Keeps the students heads down and learning something!

 

Can your students beat the puzzle code and find out about the first people to populate America? This word code puzzle is about how Native Americans travelled across the Bering Straits in the last ice age. It is an interesting topic and this task works well as an introduction to the Native American cultures or as a bellringer. I have particular success with my classes as a home work task. 

 

You could also set this as a brain teaser for any lesson including morning registration to get those brain cells working!

 

Students have to work out the letter/number code and fill in the paragraph accordingly. Five letters have been given already to help start them off. I introduce an element of competition to keep my classes focused. Not only do they have to fill in the paragraph they must pick out at least 3 key facts and be the first to tell me. This keeps the students heads down and learning!
