This is a hangman-type game where students try to guess a word by selecting letters. If they select a letter that is in the word, the letter will be displayed in the correct position(s) of the word. However, if the letter is not contained in the word, it plays a splashing sound and the octopus sinks down the page. (Touch octopus placeholders below the letters to track number of wrong guesses.) Students get six incorrect selections until the octopus sinks to the bottom and the word is revealed.
If you would like me to create a Sinking Octopus game using your own words, you can use the comment section to provide your information. All I need are your six words (from four to six letters) and the topic for your words. The topic can be anything that describes your words. For example, in the file I’m sharing in this post, the topic is “Colors.”
