Twisted Word Search

Looking for educator activities and resources for St. Patrick's Day? Here is a St. Patrick's Day word search puzzle with 2 twists to its solution:
1. the scrambled letters word clues activate problem solving skills; and
2. most hidden words have a right angled turn in their letter paths, which support visual acuity

To solve this brain teaser:

-next, record the correct spelling for each word, as it helps with solving the puzzle
-locate each word clue in the grid
-draw a circle around each hidden word
-watch for any right angle turns in the letter paths
-track progress by checking off each word as it is found

Other lesson plan ideas:

2. have kids team up to work collaboratively and cooperatively
3. use the list of word clues in literacy centers as writing prompts for journal entries, report writing, narratives, descriptive writing, explanatory writing (e.g. how the leprechaun got its name)
