New! Cryptogram puzzle to review PP&E

Below are links to handouts for a cryptogram puzzle to review Property, Plant & Equipment in financial accounting. Both handouts relate to the same puzzle, but one is the student handout and the other is the solution. This is a quick puzzle – it is a phrase that relates to PP & E. To solve a cryptogram puzzle, the puzzle solver must crack the number/letter code and figure out the hidden message. The code is a simple substitution code where each number represents a different letter of the alphabet in the solution. A few letters/numbers are given in the puzzle as clues. The A through Z legend at the top is to help puzzle solvers keep track of the letters/numbers they have found.

PP & E cryptogram puzzle (student version): Share this handout with your students to have them work on the puzzle. There is not an online puzzle; the handout will need to be printed out for use in the classroom.

PP & E cryptogram puzzle (instructor/solution version): This link contains the solution to this cryptogram puzzle.

As always, I hope you find this word puzzle to be useful with your classes.
