This product includes 1 word search puzzle and 1 answer key, which contain terms relating to political maps. The answer key is highlighted according to color: red = horizontal words and yellow = vertical 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 map drawing of the United States is found at the top, right-hand corner of the word search page.
Our original puzzle is written primarily for grades 4-5. Use it after geography lessons, before unit quizzes and tests, during morning work, as homework, as assessment, or as handouts for substitute teachers. Also, it’s the perfect activity for early finishers and ESL students.
