Free Puzzle Maker with Answer Keys

If you search the web constantly for a free puzzle maker that generates answer keys for you and gives you a variety of puzzle types to chose, I'm recommending what I have been using for years. It's a free puzzle generation tool called Puzzlemaker, created by Discovery Education.


You can use it to make word search and criss-cross (cross-word) puzzles, math squares, mazes, cryptograms and number blocks. You will have the options of printing out your puzzle straight from the webpage or you can choose the format that lets you copy and paste it into Ms Word so that it can be inserted into your own worksheet format. This will allow you to change up the size of the font and add images or special instructions for your students. 

I use it mainly for creating crossword puzzles for vocabulary and word search puzzles to match my weekly spelling word lists. So give it a try. The automatic creation of answer keys are the best part.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
