Word Searches and Language Activities
For grade 4-6 students
Blackline Master Activity Book.
'Searching' is something that might be done by a detective, someone who is trained to pick up and sift information and to reach a conclusion.
Children love to solve problems and word searches. The words in these puzzles have been hidden horizontally and vertically, both forwards and backwards. Often shared letters have been included to further extend the search.
The word searches can be used as an introduction to more meaningful tasks and extension activities - tasks that require and encourage the use and application of skills. These might include researching, mapping, summarizing, graphing, sequencing, comparing and many other sub-skills.
The supplementary activities are made up of a range of language based activities that will prove challenging and stimulating for students. They will provide extension in such areas as vocabulary, general knowledge, history and geography.
Blank grids are provided on the last page of this book so the students can compile their own word searches.
