A list of five letter words is given. Place exactly six different pentominoes into each grid, so that they do not touch each other, not even diagonally. Pentominoes can be rotated and reflected. Each pentomino must cover the letters of one of the given words (in any order), and each word must be used exactly once.

History of the puzzle
First appeared on WPC 2019. The puzzle was written by Roland Voigt (Germany).
Rules of this puzzle are very similar to that of Snaky Search from WPC 2017/Round 9. Also "Pentomino-Wörter" is a similar puzzle where you have to dissect the grid into pentominoes so that they cover the given words.
