  4. 4. Cautions while using Puzzlemaker Still suggests proofreading puzzles for unwanted words Files only viewable in Netscape and Internet Explorer browsers 4.0 or higher Site does not give decent description of puzzles (have to make a sample to see what it is).
  5. 5. How does this benefit learning? Makes learning FUN!  Ex.) The math puzzles involve critical thinking, reasoning, and math skills but students may be more intrigued simply because it is a game/puzzle. Could be used as quiet, but educational, on-topic work (after a test, etc) Introduction to a topic  Ex.) Could use a “hidden message” puzzle to introduce vocabulary words with the main topic of the next lesson being the hidden message.
