The Dust Bowl Word Search includes 1 puzzle and 1 answer key. The answer key is highlighted according to color: red = horizontal words, yellow = vertical words, and teal = diagonal words.
Students are asked to find and circle words in the puzzle using a word list. Words may be vertical, horizontal, diagonal, forward, or backward. A black and white picture from the era is found at the top, right-hand corner of the word search page.
Our original puzzle is written primarily for grades 4-5. Use it after history lessons, before unit quizzes and tests, as homework, as assessment, or as handouts for substitute teachers. Also, it’s the perfect activity for early finishers and ESL students.
