How to Solve Cryptograms

If you or your 7th graders have never solved a cryptogram, these tips will help you get started.

1. First use the hints provided to replace all the Ts with Gs and Ds with Is. You may be able to guess that the word for number 15 ends in ING

2. From there, you should be able to solve the words wind, rain, warning and gale.

3. As you solve each word, add the letters you decode to the key to help you solve more words.

It's a fun-- and perhaps sneaky -- way to get your older students to practice spelling and vocabulary skills!

And here's the best part. I've made a printable worksheet of instructions so that you or your students can also create worksheets of cryptograms at any time.  It's printable and free! 

You can find more cryptogram puzzles anytime on my other website.
