crossword

This week's mid week post is a little lighthearted – this is a fun little tool I came across (thanks to Buzz Garwood and his blog at thisweekinedtech.blogspot.com). This tool will allow you to create a simple crossword puzzle by plugging in a bunch of words and clues. The result isn't exactly NY Times worthy, but it works, and you might find this to be a fun tool to create a topic-specific crossword for your students, or to let them create one.

I'm sure this isn't the only such tool on the Internet – comments about others you may have used are welcome. Thanks!

  2. Thanks Cindy – I took a quick peek at this tool set on DiscoveryEducation.com and it looks far more robust than the one I’ve posted here. Thanks so much for passing it on!

  3. http://puzzlemaker.discoveryeducation.com/ also has a great crossword puzzle maker. In the list of options, it is called crisscross. The other puzzles in the list are fun and easy to use. I use the crosswords to reinforce vocabulary as well as another way to get around that boring task of writing spelling words over and over.
