Description

A word search puzzle featuring words associated with crime fiction. This puzzle is a great way to test your investigating skills with words. Use this sheet as part of your teaching curriculum, a treat for early finishers or just for fun.

I have included 30 words in the list. Words may appear forward, backward, up, down or diagonal. Words may overlap and cross each other. When you have found a word, be sure to circle it and cross it off the list.

Word List: Abduction, Agent, Alarm, Amateur, Book, Caper, Caught, Clue, Cozy, Criminal, Dangerous, Detective, Examine, FBI, Forensics, Foul Play, Got Away, Investigator, Murder, Mystery, Police, Red Herring, Serial, Sherlock, Specialist, Suspect, Unsub, Watson, Whodunit, Witness.

Includes word search solution, as well as, color and b/w versions of the handout.

Word searches are not only a great way to pass the time, they also make fantastic teaching aids. My puzzles can be used by a variety of people (teachers, managers, religious leaders, professors, and parents just to name a few) to help others instill important facts and lessons.

Not that you really need an excuse to work on a puzzle, but just in case you do, here are a handful of reasons why you should solve word searches:

  • Boosts vocabulary,
  • Improves spelling and logic skills
  • Intellectually engaging
  • Helps you think outside of the box
  • Forces your brain to exercise and workout
  • Assists in problem solving
  • Allows a different form of thinking
  • Easily carried from place to place
  • Develops word recognition
  • Builds stamina
  • Teaches word pattern
  • Rewarding when one is completed
  • And they're TONS OF FUN!!

Need help finding the words. . . .

  1. Ignore the word list and just look for words to "jump out" at you
  2. Look for multiple words at a time instead of just one word
  3. Turn your puzzle upside or sideways
  4. Search sections or chunks at a time versus one letter
  5. Take a short break or look away for a few minutes
