Are you planning to read the book Duck for President in your upper elementary classroom? It's a fun book most any grade can enjoy. Although it is often used in the lower grades, I like to use it as a read aloud to upper elementary to get them thinking about elections when we study government. It can also be used during election time. Using Duck for President as a read aloud can get kids talking about vocabulary and the process of voting. Word searches can also be a fun way to get your students talking about the election. Your students will enjoy this fun word search!

In this Duck for President word search puzzle, words are found forward, backward, up, down, and diagonally. I would consider it on the challenging side since students are looking for words in all directions.
Using Word Searches in the Classroom:
I use word searches to introduce vocabulary, or even just give it as morning work. Maybe have them look up the words or use them in a sentence. Possibly even illustrate some of them. They are also great to glue in writing notebooks for future writing topics. They offer the perfect opportunity to get your kids talking about key vocabulary. They are perfect for early finishers. Great for a sub, too. How about homework as a family activity. Use this "Duck for President" word search however you would like in your classroom.
