The Early Humans Word Search includes 1 word search puzzle and 1 answer key, which contain terms relating to the Stone Age. The answer key is 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. A color picture of one of the Lascaux cave paintings is found at the top, right-hand corner of the word search page.
Our original ancient history puzzle is written primarily for grade 6. Use it after history lessons, before unit quizzes and tests, as homework, as assessment, or as handouts for substitute teachers. Also, it’s the perfect activity for early finishers and ESL students.
