Word Search 1 supports the book Cinco de Mayo by Linda Lowery, and can also be used independently. All the words read left to right or top to bottom. There are no diagonals and no backwards words. The answer bank at the bottom can be easily hidden by your students to make the puzzle more challenging.
I also have a harder word search (includes diagonal and backwards words) with the same vocabulary, cinco de mayo worksheets, and other cinco de mayo puzzles, as well as a bundle with all my cinco de mayo resources.
