This is a PDF of a European Explorers of the New World crossword puzzle and word search. These can be used in combination or separately, as the answers for the crossword puzzle are in the word search, as well as a few other words of the theme so there are several more words in the word search than the crossword puzzle. A word bank for the crossword puzzle is also included on a separate page.
This crossword is focused on European Explorers of the New World, with answers such as Columbus, Cabot, Cortes, Hudson, Vespucci, etc. The only non-explorer answer is the Treaty of Tordesillas. I also have crosswords related to Native American life (daily life of Native Americans), history (primarily contact with European explorers and settlers) and tribes (the various tribes of North America) in my store.
Teacher answer keys are also supplied.
