Are your students getting excited about the summer Olympic® Games? I bet they each have their own favorite sport to watch. If your students are like mine, they will enjoy this fun "Summer Games" themed word search!! This word search covers 13 games and has a cute image for each one.
Please note that this activity can compliment your studies of the Olympics® , but it does not say Olympics® on it. It does have a gold medal image, as well as images of 13 sports
In this Summer Games themed 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. There are not too many to find, so that makes it a little easier.
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 write about each sport. Maybe you want to practice sentence writing by having them use each word in a sentence that is related to the Olympic® Games. Use the word search puzzle however you would like in your classroom.
