This bundle pack for fourth and fifth graders includes 10 word search puzzles and 10 answer keys containing topics and terms related to Colonial America. Answer keys are highlighted according to color: red = horizontal words, yellow = vertical words, and teal = diagonal words.
Students are asked to find and circle words in the puzzle using a word list. Words may be vertical, horizontal, diagonal, forward, or backward. Color and black/white pictures are found at the top, right-hand corner of each word search page.
Use this bundle after lessons, as homework, or as handouts for substitute teachers. Also, it’s the perfect activity for early finishers and ESL students.
