Word scramble games were created by Martin Naydel in 1954, and they have been well loved all over the world since! In a word scramble game, there are lines of scrambled up letters that may seem completely random.
The job of the player is to rearrange the letters to make an actual word. For example, if the players are faced with “NLEVITIOES” then they could rearrange the letters to make the word “TELEVISION”.
Word scrambles are great additions to your curriculum, because they give your students a fun and engaging way to test their reading, comprehension and spelling. Because you can create word scramble templates that are completely custom with WordMint, you can constantly challenge your students with new words.
An anagram is a word dating back to 1589 that describes rearranging the letters of another word or phrase, which is the essential task of a word scramble!
