There are two categories of puzzles: Nutcracker Character Word Searches and Nutcracker Song Word Search. Six word finds are included for each category. Three of the word searches (for each category) are at an easy level with grid lines. The words go mostly forward - diagonally, horizontally and vertically. Three of the word searches (for each of the categories) are more challenging. They contain no grid lines and include words that go forwards and backwards – diagonally, horizontally and vertically.
The nutcrackers at the bottom of the page (and the borders) are a “code” system for you in case you decide to hand out all three of a type of a puzzle at the same time. That way, students will find it more difficult to “copy” if they look at someone else’s puzzle. Answer keys are included for each puzzle.
