Are you looking for fun and challenging teacher lesson plan activities and resources to support academic chemistry grades 9-12 and home schools? This table of elements word search puzzle, with the word clues missing, activates problem solving skills.

To solve the puzzle
-FIRST, brain storm ideas for possible words (alternatively, secure the list of elements as a reference).
-NEXT, locate words hidden in the grid.
-THEN, trace each word path. REMINDER: letter paths travel in all 8 directions: up, down, forwards, backwards and diagonally.
-FINALLY, track progress by recording the elements in the space provided.

Lesson plan activity ideas:
l. CATEGORIZE list of periodic table of elements using any number of topics: a) toxicity, b) atomic weight/number/mass, c) period, d) group, e) number of isotopes, f) stability, or g) other category
2. EXPLORE the history behind table of elements listed (once puzzle solved).
3. ENGAGE students to CREATE personal word searches using word search templates found here: Blank Word Search grids.
