For this 'fact find' word search, the facts are actually definitions, which makes it perfect for a review. This many not cover all of the landforms you study in class, so please see the list below to make sure this will work for you.

This is not just any 'ole puzzle. It doesn't just include words. It includes facts (definitions) about landforms that your students will enjoy reading. I call it a 'fact find'. Within each fact, a word (or words) is underlined. Those are the words the students will find in the puzzle.

For example, one sentence says, "Plateaus are areas of land with a flat top, but they are also higher than the land around them." The word 'plateaus' is underlined and that is the word students will find.

In this landforms themed word search puzzle, 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. They are also practicing reading skills.

I use word searches to introduce vocabulary, or even just give it as morning work. Use it in social studies and have the kids illustrate each landform. Perfect for a sub, too.

There are many options for using this word search 'fact find'.
One option is to have students partner up and practice fluency. They can take turns reading the sentences. This can be used for a writing activity by having them elaborate and tell more about a landform. Use it as a reading homework assignment,too. Parents can work with their child to find the words. Use it as a preview to a landforms video you plan to watch. It's perfect to use as a study guide for a landform test or to use as a review before state testing. Feel free to be creative and use it in your classroom however you would like.

The words underlined in the landforms themed fact (definition) find include:

plains
plateaus
mesa
hills
prairie
mountains
valleys
canyon
swamp
island
peninsula
cliff
volcano
isthmus
gulf
bay
cove
strait
river
