5 Bumps

It's a puzzle and I'm STUMPED! Help!

My son is working on a word ladder puzzle. Start with dive. Change one letter at a time to form new words without rearranging the letters, until you spell pool.

  • Wow, 5th grade huh, that's just nuts. I think the teacher might have copied the question from wiki without actually looking at it closely haha. My husband is going to come home and wonder why I have dive and pool written down a million times on this piece of paper lol. :)-
