Product Description
Plant and Animal Cells: Are you studying cells in science? If so, your students will enjoy this fun word search!! If your students are like mine, they love these types of activities.

In this plant and animal cells themed puzzle, words are found forward, backward, up, down, and diagonally. I would consider it on the challenging side since students are looking for words in all directions and the vocabulary may be more suitable for upper elementary (see the list below).

I use word searches to introduce vocabulary, or even just give it as morning work. They are also great to glue in writing notebooks for future writing topics. Perfect for a sub, too. Have your students pick words from the list to use in a writing activity during science. Use it as a guide to have them share what they have learned about plants. How about homework or even to trigger their memory before state testing or a unit test! Use this cells word search however you would like in your classroom.

PLEASE NOTE: PLEASE READ... if you ever see something about my word searches that you think should be changed, such as a word within the puzzle that was accidentally generated, PLEASE just send me a message BEFORE you rate the product. I will work to get it corrected for you. I really appreciate it. When you create word search puzzles and put words in the going forward, backward, and diagonally, it's quite possible a word might be accidentally generated from time to time, such as an a with a double s. I always look to remove these, but I also always tell kids to be mature if they happen to find and point out a combination of letters together such as that.
