Here's an easy puzzle assignment that students of any age enjoy. Making your own wordsearch!
This assignment comes with complete step-by-step directions that grades 4-8 should easily be able to follow to: design, exchange, and solve wordsearches.
The topic of this Create-A-Wordsearch is ANIMALS and I have provided a list of over 90 different animals to help students who have trouble thinking of their own. I usually let older students use their devices to find 20 unique animals that helps make each wordsearch different.
This is a great addition to any science or language arts classroom and is a great activity for a Friday afternoon.
