80 words or phrases hidden within symbols & images. Real and imagined characters (Abraham Lincoln, Easter Bunny, Elvis Presley, Santa Claus, Tinkerbell). Common sayings (you’d better behave, frog in your throat, no running, pop goes the weasel, around the world). Single words (rainbow, dragonfly, dinosaur, bulletin) and common word pairs kids know (tree house, peanut butter sandwich, belly button, potato chip). This activity can be used for homework to involve the family, as group work to use the mind power of many, or as extra work for your Gifted or early finishers.
