- The word that is combined with apple and pineapple is rats. Place a ‘t’ at the beginning of rats and then read it in reverse order.
b – Block Puzzle
- Place the blocks in the frame, and use the letters covered by the numbers n the blocks.
- Fill blocks ‘a’ to ‘g’ with their corresponding letters, and think about the meaning the instruction indicates.
