Gapfill maker Choose your flavour

Create a gapfill for the above text. Choose from these different types:

  • a simple gap fill, with blanks only (you will need the words above to complete it)

  • a head word gapfill, in which each of the academic words will be replaced by the head word (or by another word form if the replaced word is itself a headword)

  • a word family gapfill, in which each of the academic words will be replaced by another word from the same word family





Gapfill will appear here.
