I’m always looking for different ways to review content in my history class. After completing a unit, such as the Westward Expansion, a puzzle is always a fun method to assess student knowledge of the material.
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.
