Printable Cryptogram Puzzles
These printable cryptogram puzzles use letter substitutions to encrypt short paragraphs of text. A letter is never replaced with the same letter, so every letter in each encryption is changed to another letter of the alphabet. For example, all A's in a puzzle may be replaced with letter P, while all P's might become L's, etc.
The puzzles are created in theme sets of related topics. Each page of cryptogram puzzles has 3 puzzles per page, each related to the main theme of the page. However, each puzzle is more directly related to the title given to the individual cryptogram. Choose a theme and choose the puzzle type and enjoy the printable puzzles. For example, three topics of cryptograms related to the cat theme could be general characteristics, Garfield, and Puss 'N Boots.
Each cryptogram on each page has a different encryption from the other cryptograms. So, each of the three cryptogram puzzles per page must be solved separately. Solution pages are also included. If this is for use in a classroom with younger kids, the teacher may want to give a hint by supplying the solution for one of the words in each puzzle.
