Caesar code is a good example of a cipher. It was used by Julius Caesar a long time ago when he wanted to write something private. It's a simple and easy to learn. It works by replacing each letter of the alphabet by a letter three letters forward.
For example, “A” is the letter “D” and “N” is the letter “Q”. Here is the whole code:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Z Y
D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z A B C
You could even have a few spy gadgets in your Home! Do you have water glasses? Clear tape? These everyday objects can all become spy gadgets!
Have you ever wished you could hear a conversation from another room? You don't need a fancy hearing device for that, just an ordinary drinking glass! Press the end you drink from against the wall of the room you want to listen in to and press your ear to the other.
Like magic, you can hear a conversation from the other room!
A spy needs to keep his base free of intruders! If you want to tell if someone has been in your room, simply close your door and place a piece of clear tape in between your door and your door frame. If the tape is broken when you come back, someone has been snooping.
Morse code is a telegraph system (a non-secret code) created by Samuel Morse in the nineteenth century. The code is a series of dots (.) and dashes(-) that make up letters that can either be written, toned, or flashed.
When making Morse code, Samuel visited a sprinters shop to find out what letters were used most often and made those letters the smallest. The most used letter was “E”, so “E” is a dot. “E is followed by “S”, and then by “A”.
Today, Morse in mostly used by amateur radio operators and pilots and is rarely used otherwise.
Tips for Disguise
1. Change your accent! A good spy not only looks but talks like the person he's pretending to be.
2. Know who you are! What if someone asks you a question? What's your name? Where are you from? Do you have A job? Kids? Be ready to answer all of these questions.
3. Have a story ready for your disguise. What are you doing? Where are you going?
4. Make the disguise more realistic by putting things in your pocket like change, wrappers, or movie tickets.
Carry a wallet or purse with personal touches like pictures of the family
5. Never Break character! You never know when someone may be looking...

Cipher Devices are designed to make codes unreadable to anyone but the person meant to receive it. This is usually done by switching letters and numbers with other letters to making it look like a jumbled up mess of letters and numbers to anyone who reads it.
In 1934, a man named Boris Hegelian invented a cipher machine for the french secret service. During World War II, over 14,000 of the machines were made for the U.S.
Today, cipher devices are still being used. The most simple one used is made of two wheels, one inside another.
Others are more complicated, using 25 or more whhiles to make a cipher.
Invisible Ink Pen
When you want to send a spy report without the enemy reading it you write in code. But if someone discovered the code, it will be pretty suspicious. If you want to write something that the enemy will not read, invisible ink is the way to go.
Invisible ink has been used for almost a century. It was first used by the Romans. It was made from milk of the thithymallus plant. In the Revolutionary war, they used sulfate and water to create invisible ink. Some wrote in lemon juice or vinegar. Today we use invisible ink that can be read under a blacklight.
Invisible ink is often written between the lines of letters, notes, and even music sheets. But people are always thinking of new ways to write with invisible ink. In world war I, a woman was discovered carrying an invisible ink message on her back! Once, invisible in was found written on the petals of a flower.
You can make your own invisible ink too.
