This booklet is a stand-alone A4 Wordsearch Puzzle Booklet containing enough puzzles to cover the whole of the science curriculum FOR THE WHOLE YEAR!
Each word search has 40 words to find in an easy to read grid format. Each of the 40 words is specifically associated with each topic of each unit. They all contain solutions.
These stand-alone puzzles can be used individually "as is" and do not need to be used in any particular order, unless you wish to do so.
Each stand-alone puzzle is designed to complement the National Curriculum for the year indicated on the front cover. However, it should be noted that the puzzles are are easily used in other year groups to compliment teaching programs from grades 5-10.
The puzzles are great as part of your teaching program and ideal for vocabulary reviews, spelling, early finishers, revision and unit testing, relief teacher or substitute teachers, homework or perhaps just as something fun to do. They are even great for those doing home school.
Subject areas covered in the yearbook include:
The Study of Science
