: Are you studying about the US declaring independence? Possibly you are looking to find an activity for the 4th of July. Maybe you are introducing the topic or needing a review. If so, your students will enjoy this fun "Independence Day" word search!! If your students are like mine, they love these.
This is also a fun activity to use on Constitution Day if you want to discuss events leading to the writing of the Constitution.
In this Independence Day themed puzzle, words are found forward, backward, up, down, and diagonal. I would consider it on the challenging side since students are looking for words in all directions and the content may be more suitable for upper elementary (see the list below), such as understanding the words revolution and British rule.
I use word searches to introduce vocabulary, or even just give it as morning work. They are also great to glue in writing notebooks for future writing topics. Perfect for a sub, too. Have your students further explain some of the key terms in a writing activity during social studies. Maybe they could illustrate a few. Use it as a guide to have them share what they have learned about Independence Day. How about homework or even to trigger their memory before state testing or a unit test. Use this Independence Day word search however you would like in your classroom.
