Magic Square

Setting it up

The rules I give my students are:

  • Words have to be three letters or more.
  • You can move in any direction – horizontally, vertically or diagonally. But each letter must connect with the next, so you can’t jump squares.
  • When you’ve used a square in a word, you’re not allowed to use it again in that word.
  • You should try to find 15 words or more in 4 minutes.
  • Example: ‘said‘ But not ‘adds’ because it repeats ‘d’ and not ‘sat’ because you jump to ‘t’.

Spend a couple of minutes and see how many words you can find in the square.
