Knowledge Mouse

September 7, 2012 -- Submitted by Bryan Lee, a reader from Burlingame, CA, who is affiliated with the site.

Knowledge Mouse is a brand new site that claims to try to “make learning fun”. The site features various activities including a word search puzzle creator, a flash card maker, a arithmetic quiz generator, and a quiz sheet maker. With the word-based tools, you can enter your own words, or choose from existing lists. The word search puzzle maker also features a “quiz-style” mode, where instead of just listing the words that are in the puzzle, you can instead give questions or hints.

These are all “printable” activities, as there are currently no live games on the site. The printables are helpful for teachers and parents to teach kids in a more fun and entertaining way. The above activities are all free, and there are no ads on the site.

PuzzlePick

February 25, 2012 -- Submitted by Fraser McKen, a teacher from Victoria BC Canada, who is affiliated with the site.

PuzzlePick.com features three different puzzles:

a) A daily standard (15 X 15) American puzzle, (“MorningMaze”) which looks like the one in your daily paper – along with a bonus word scramble which you can solve after you solve the daily crossword. Then on the weekend, there is a weekend version (21 X 21) which looks like the big weekend puzzles you get in the big weekend paper (but it’s nowhere near as tough to do).

Both puzzles are downloadable puzzle in .pdf and so is the solution, which you get with the following puzzle.

b) A weekly cryptic crossword, (“CoffeeCrypt”) along with an instruction pagefor those visitors who haven’t tried cryptic crosswords. This puzzle you can do either interactively or as a download in .pdf

c) A twice weekly interactive trivia puzzle (“SoHuNu?”) which, along with the interactive version of “CoffeeCrypt”, runs on a free, downloadable java platform which you can get at www.java.com.

The SoHuNu? is an interactive game which asks ten questions on a fun topic (ex. Famous Blondes, Famous Movie Bad Guys, etc.) But if you get bored before completing the puzzle, you can push a REVEAL button. Then after you’ve finished the puzzle, you win a prize! (A page will appear telling you where to get the prize.)

All these puzzles have been developed by a retired English teacher. Careful attention then has been paid to spelling and one major mission in the project has been to present students with an activity which will give them something constructive to do as well as inviting participation by the whole family.

I hope everyone enjoys Puzzlepick.com
