Page 15 - Word Search OPTIONAL ACTIVITY. Please do not make this activity mandatory for students to complete.

Students either love word searches, or greatly dislike word searches. If students dislike word searches, it may be due to working memory, visualization and processing difficulties. Please be guided by your students' academic needs.
