Looking for educator resources that challenge students about US capitals? This hidden word search puzzle engages students' brains as they locate hidden words without having the list of words as reference.

To problem solve, perhaps have students brainstorm a list of Capital Cities as a reference point. Next, locate the words hidden in the grid. Finally, record the words in the space below the grid.

Possible lesson plan activity ideas:
l. put the words in alphabetical order
2. combing the letters of 2-3 cities, use only those letters to generate as many words as you can (see example below)
3. integrate the puzzle into the literacy center
