This is not just any 'ole puzzle. It doesn't just include words. It includes facts about Veterans Day that your students will enjoy reading. I call it a 'fact find'. Within each fact, a word (or words) is underlined. Those are the words the students will find in the puzzle. For example, one sentence says, "Veterans are the men and women who have served in the military." The word 'military' is underlined and that is the word students will find.

In this Veterans Day themed word search 'fact find' 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 and because they will practice reading skills.

I use word searches to introduce vocabulary, or even just give it as morning work. They are also great to use in writing. Perfect for a sub, too.

There are many options for using this Veterans Day word search 'fact find'. One option is to have students partner up and practice fluency. They can take turns reading the sentences. This can be used for a writing activity. Have them take the facts from the puzzle and turn them into a paragraph about Veterans Day, changing out some of the words to make it their own. Use it as a reading homework assignment,too. Parents can work with their child to find the words. Use it as a preview or follow up to a Veterans Day video you plan to watch. Feel free to be creative and use it in your classroom however you would like.

The words underlined in the Veterans Day themed fact find include:

Army
Navy
Air Force
