Students solve 2-step linear equations in each square of the grid, then use the key up top to get the corresponding letters. The letters form the word search! Like the classic game Battle Ship, they may hit a word on their first go, or wind up doing all 25 question (which couldn't hurt!).
This makes a great early-finisher task, review worksheet, or supply day resource.
Enjoy! I'd love to hear how it went with your students through TpT feedback!
Thanks for checking this out!
