Here is a Fourth of July hidden words word search puzzle activity.
Teacher lesson plan ideas for using puzzles in the learning environment (distance learning, hybrid learning and in-class instruction):
l. introduce topic using the word search
2. have students work collaboratively to solve the puzzle
3. use as an assessment tool to determine any learning gaps
4. include puzzle to engage critical thinking skills
5. categorize vocabulary by 'parts of speech'
Word search puzzles engage students' brains while supporting visual acuity and fine motor skills. To solve the puzzle students need some base knowledge of vocabulary before finding the hidden words.
Solve the puzzle
-locate the 20 words hidden in the grid
-trace the letter paths
-letter paths travel horizontally, vertically and diagonally in all 8 directions
-record the words in the space below the grid
Available in both PDF and Google apps versions this word search puzzle supports distance, hybrid and in-person learning. Puzzle also supports homeschooling and tutoring.
