Should educators use puzzles to support learning? Puzzles are one key way to introduce concepts and vocabulary to students, engage the brains, and activate problem solving skills. The unique ability of word search puzzles to support these elements in student learning makes them a go-to resource. To solve the puzzle students need to locate the words hidden in the grid. When they are first learning vocabulary, have students work as part of the team. Since students learn from each other, this helps to accelerate and consolidate their learning.

Have fun completing puzzles from the Thanksgiving and Hallowe'en collections found here: Thanksgiving Puzzles | Thanksgiving Word Searches | Hallowe'en Puzzles.
