Step 2: Make a Word Search!

Make a word search! 

It's easy!  Draw some vertical lines on a piece of line paper.  Now, just think of a theme and then come up with words that fit into that theme. For this one, I did Disney characters. Then, I entered the Disney characters into the boxes.  You could come up with a lot more than I did.  As long as they fit into the boxes, horizontal, vertical, diagonal, backwards, then they can be in the word bank.  Now, just fill in the rest of the letters.  Trade and see who can finish theirs first!  Who made the hardest one?  Whose theme was best?  Want more of a challenge, don't use a word bank or tell them the theme, let them figure it out on their own.
