Resource of the Week: Wordsnake on Handling Data

wordsnake

In our Puzzles section we have a number of great activities related to maths. Some of these are quite tricky, including the Wordsnakes. This particular one is all about the language of Handling Data – great for a wet playtime activitiy!

A Wordsnake is a little like a maze of letters. Start at the arrow to find the first word, moving across or down the grid of letters (but not diagonally) like a snake. The word will not be inĀ  a straight line but each letter in the grid can only be used once. The second word follows on immediately from the first, the third from the second and so on until each letter has been used and the maze is exited at the second arrow.

On this Wordsnake the first word has been done for you and the number of dashes shows how many letters there are in each word. As it is about data handling all the words are to do with this. Still not clear? Why not have a go as it is testing even for adults!
