Spelling Detective

With this free activity you can give students a list of words to investigate. Work individually or in teams. Includes a worksheet and a Powerpoint briefing.

FAO: Chief Sheriff

Choose which words are under investigation and issue them to your crack team of Word detectives.

During the investigation detectives may use a dictionary, a thesaurus, story books, newspapers and magazines to investigate:

  • what each word means
  • how it is used and then identify similar looking and/or sounding words.

At the debrief each team can share notes and help with unsolved cases.
