I read this Winterhouse excerpt and loved it. Then, I immediately passed it on to one of my students. Can't wait to buy this book for my classroom and share this awesome activity with her.
Activity Name: Creating Puzzles and Codes
Activity Description: Explore several types of fun puzzles and codes--including anagrams, Word Ladders, ambigrams, and the challenging Vigenere Cipher--and try to create some of your own. If you learn how to use the Vigenere Cipher, you can send coded messages that are nearly impossible to break! (Teachers can go here to find more details and some helpful resources for all codes/puzzles indicated on the activity sheet: http://benguterson.com/puzzles-and-codes/)
