Product Description
Are you studying the California Gold Rush? Maybe you are looking to review some important vocabulary during your westward expansion unit. Your students will enjoy this fun "California Gold Rush" word search!

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. They are perfect for early finishers. Perfect for a sub, too. How about homework or even to trigger their memory before state testing or a unit test? Use this California Gold Rush word search however you would like in your classroom.

In this word search puzzle, words are found forward, backward, up, down, and diagonally. I would consider it on the challenging side since students are looking for words in all directions, and some are larger words or two words rather then one.

The words students will find in this California Gold Rush themed puzzle are:
