CONCEPT: Generate nine different class activities then export as PDFs for students to complete.
DELIVERY:A simple but effective idea here - collate various classroom activity generators into one package. With nine different tasks on offer, each with various options and tweaks, you're definitely spoilt for choice. The presentation is straightforwards and easy to navigate and upon creation, each activity can be exported in PDF format. You can even elect to generate a class set of the same doc or individualised versions for each student.
The activities on offer include some self-explanatory ones like crossword, wordsearch, anagrams and mazes as well as a few less common concepts:
Path Puzzle - total the numbers on three paths to see which one makes the given total. You can of course choose from various totals.
Stepping Stone - find a path across a grid. This could be a path made up of certain numbers or letters eg follow the alphabet or just vowels.
Secret Message - a code cracking activity that can use a letter or symbol based cypher.
Number Grid - a numerical crossword style activity.
Split Words - probably my favourite one, this activity chops a secret message up into blocks of three letters (including spaces) and the challenge is to recombine in the correct order.
LIMITATIONS:The app uses a credits system to pay for activities. Each activity costs one credit and you start with five. More have to be purchased and this can be done in scaling quantities or via an unlimited license.
CONCLUSION: A useful tool for the busy teacher with wide applications across the curriculum thanks to the diversity of activities included. 4/5
