Global History Word Puzzles for Every Unit (Free Downloads)


world history puzzles

Puzzles are a great way to review content in history class. After completing a particular unit, it’s a fun method to assess student knowledge of the material. Students enjoy word search puzzles, but they don’t really assess their knowledge of the subject matter. Many students struggle with crossword puzzles for various reasons.

But what if a crossword and word search had a baby; what would it look like? It would have clues to answer (like a crossword) AND hidden words to find (like a word search).

That’s exactly what my review puzzle series looks like. There are two versions of the puzzle — one with and one without a word bank. This helps differentiate for your students that need the support of a word bank and challenges others to complete it without. The first letter of every term is given as a little clue. Finally, there is a google slides link if you choose to assign the puzzle digitally. Yes, There is an answer key too:-)

These puzzles are great to use as a review before an assessment, homework assignment or distance learning lesson. I’ve used them tons of times in my classes. I hope they help you in yours. Just click on the link below to grab your copy.
