This word search not only has students, translating words into Spanish then looking for the translations, but it also has a hidden message within! I really enjoy using word searches, because I feel like students are getting more familiar with the vocab, as they constantly say the words over and over again while they look for them within the puzzle. This word search is somewhat self-checking, as the hidden message is revealed by the letters that remain once the puzzle is complete - top to bottom, left to right. This word search has 25 simple translations of the vocabulary from Chapter 1 (Cocina hispana) of the Asi se dice 3 book. Answer key of translations and hidden message included.
