Bill or Rights
: Are you studying the Bill or Rights in social studies? Maybe you are introducing them or needing a review. If so, your students will enjoy this fun "Bill or Rights" word search!! If your students are like mine, they love these.
This is also a fun activity to use on Constitution Day.
In this Bill or Rights 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).
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 each of the amendments in a writing activity during social studies. Maybe they could illustrate each one. Use it as a guide to have them share what they have learned about the Bill or Rights. How about homework or even to trigger their memory before state testing or a unit test. Use this Bill or Rights word search however you would like in your classroom.
