The sharkbait widget allows us to create our own word puzzle. We can find it in the media bank by typing in ‘shark’, once added to the page click away and select the next button.

We now see the set-up screen where we can make a word or phrase for the players to guess. We are in a French class and the phrase we want the pupils to guess is ‘une tarte aux pommes’.

If we wanted to add a foreign character, we can use the arrow buttons. We can also click the back space button if we make a mistake. We can choose to hide all the letters or reveal some.

We are going to hide all, but we will add a clue for the players. When we are happy with our answer we click ‘Start game’.

We can choose to show the clue and start the timer, and now the players can guess one letter at a time by clicking on the buttons. If the letter is in the answer, it will display; if it isn't, the diver moves one step nearer to the end of the plank.

When the game is finished we can return to the set up screen using the New Game. The game can be saved for future use by selecting the object, right clicking and choosing ‘Add to the media bank’.
