11 Wordle-style Games that High Schools Students Love
I recently started playing Wordle. I'm hooked!It took me a while to get into it, though. When I would see my friends post colored squares on Facebook and comment about the difficulty of the day's word, I figured I would try it one day. But I was in no rush.
Then, I started to notice that my first period class was so engaged in Wordle each morning that I had trouble getting their attention to start lessons. I couldn't beat 'em, so I decided to join them.
Today, a rock-star student started a list on the classroom whiteboard of games that are similar to Wordle. As the day progressed, a few students added games to the list. Here are the Wordle-style games recommended by a few high school students:
- Wordle - Players have six attempts to guess a five-letter word.
- Quordle - Guess four words in nine tries.
- Worldle - Guess the country in six guesses, based on its shape.
- Globle - Figure out the mystery country in as few guesses as possible.
- Nerdle - Guess the calculation in six tries.
