What a better way to celebrate Earth Day than with a fun printable game?
That’s why I designed this cute Earth Day word search puzzle that can also be used as an educational resource in your classroom.
It includes 20 hidden words about the environment, conservation, and recycling.
Perfect for improving spelling, learning new vocabulary related to protecting our planet, and developing problem-solving and analytical skills.
I recommend using this printable with kids in grades 3 to 5, but older children and adults will love it as well!
It can also be used with younger kids that know how to read and write. To make it easier for them, I put the word list is in upper case, so the letters look identical to the search puzzle.
Feel free to use this activity at home or hand it out in the classroom as a fun Earth Day worksheet.
And don’t forget to talk about what makes our planet so unique and how we can take care of it!
By the way, go ahead and print as many copies of this game as you need. But if you want to share it online, please link to this post and not directly to the PDF files. This way, I can continue to create more free printables for you. 💚
