3 - Wordties

Wordties are a kind of question card with a single word answer that needs to be typed in. There's no multiple choice because this activity is about finding a single word. There are many other types of questions in various other packs for all sorts of things, ranging from English grammar to Mathematics. Questions of various forms. For example: Multiple-choice, Enter an answer, enter a blog link to an essay you've written and many more.
Wordtie questions have clues as their parts. The player looks at the various clues, including images and audio and when they see the word that all clues are pointing to they enter this word and score points.
These clue parts do not have the multiple choice radio buttons activated, but they offer text and audio hints. The player should type in a single word answer. After an incorrect attempt the screen fades away and that question remains unavailable for a set time.
