Product Description

Thanksgiving Word Search Activity: Kick off November or the Thanksgiving holiday week with this fun themed puzzle. Your students are sure to enjoy reviewing the vocabulary words!! If your students are like mine, they love word searches.

NOTE: This word search pack has 2 of the same word search, but they have different titles. It's basically just one puzzle but you can choose when to use it. One is titled "Thanksgiving" and the other is titled "November". This allows you two choices on times to use it. You can pass it out at the start of November or wait until closer to Thanksgiving and use it as a holiday activity. The same answer key is used for both choices.

Keep the challenge level in mind if choosing this word search for 3rd graders. In this Thanksgiving word search, 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.

I use word search puzzles to introduce vocabulary, or even just give it as morning work to go along with a holiday theme or topic we are studying in class. They are also great to use for writing. You could have students practice their writing by using some of the words from the word search. Then when they are finished with the writing, they get to complete the puzzle. Have them write sentences or a short November or Thanksgiving themed story.

Of course you don't have to do the writing part, you could simply use it for the puzzle.

This November / Thanksgiving word search is perfect for a sub, too!!
