Setting up and playing a Fill in the Blanks activity

Write a sentence or paragraph that includes up to ten blank spaces, then let students drag the missing words into the blanks.

This activity teaches deduction, composition, and memory.

Here’s an example of a Fill in the Blanks activity based on Lewis Carroll’s nonsense poem, “Jabberwocky.”

Two stanzas of the poem Jabberwocky appear with several blanks where keywords should appear. The words are displayed along the bottom of the screen and can be dragged up to fill in the blanks in the paragraph above.

This example was created by typing the poem’s first two stanzas and then selecting words to appear as blanks.
