This back to school word scramble is a great game for elementary and middle school-aged kids. I have added two versions of the word game.
One has no clues at all, and one has the actual words around the side of the puzzle to make it easier for younger kids.
Print off as many copies as you need and just have fun. Let me know in the comments what your hardest word was.
We also love playing mad libs all year round, but this first day of school mad libs book is another great fun activity to keep them entertained. It’ll also make a great back to school gifts for homeschoolers.
The first sheet is the easiest word scramble.
They all have 12 words to find, but this version below has the answers written in green around the sides. This will make it much easier for younger children.
The second word scramble is much harder.
There are no answers at all, so the children have to try and unscramble the words. The only clue is, all of the words are related to school!
