: Recognize Election Day using this fun word search puzzle. If your students are like mine, they love these. It's filled with vocabulary that will get your kids talking about the people, events, and ideas surrounding Election Day.
Keep the challenge level in mind if choosing this for 3rd graders. In this Election Day word search, words are found forward, backward, up, down, and diagonal. I would consider it on the challenging side since students are looking for words in all directions.
I use word search puzzles to introduce vocabulary, or even just give it as morning work to go along with a holiday theme or topic we are studying in class. They are also great to use for writing. You could have students practice their writing by using some of the words from the word search. Then when they are finished with the writing, they get to complete the puzzle. Have your students write an informational paragraph or a short story about election day.
Of course you don't have to do the writing part, you could simply use it for the puzzle.
This Election Day word search is perfect for a sub, too!! Even use as a follow up activity to a movie about elections or Election Day.
