A simple wordsearch on 1 side of A4. It is quiet a challenge! For GCSE chemists. ( I have now removed an error which had two letters in one box and one box with a space. I had to make it bigger and spread the puzzle onto two sides, one side with clues and one with the puzzle grid. Apologies to those who bought the defective version- contact me for a replacement)

Disappearing cross plus gas syringe simulations. Please note: in order to provide a rich interactive experience, my interactive resources are mini-web sites local to your computer. After unzipping, they comprise a folder containing the main .html file and another folder containing the graphic resources and my coding to make the resource work. Double click on the .html file and the resource will work. If, however , you move or delete any of the files from this hierarchy, the resource will not work. stdobbs.com ©D&D production
