Stimulating, engaging and educational thematic puzzles and tasks for 9 to 12 year-olds
Children love to solve problems and word puzzles. The words in these word searches have been hidden horizontally, vertically and diagonally, both forwards and backwards. Often shared letters have been included to further extend the search.
Word Searches 2.0 are an ideal way of achieving consolidation of children’s language skills. The process of searching for given words and analysing the structure of those words helps to improve spelling and extends vocabulary. This book also contains activities requiring students to use such skills as researching, mapping, summarising, graphing, sequencing and comparing.
The word searches can be used as an introduction to more meaningful tasks and extension activities – tasks that require and encourage the use and application of skills. These include:
- Comparing and many other sub-skills.
The supplementary activities are made up of a range of language-based activities that will prove challenging and stimulating for students. They will provide extension in such areas as vocabulary, general knowledge, history and geography.
