For instance, Route 66 may be acknowledged by old timers as the Main Street of America, but for the young crowd it is now more known as the reason why the rookie missed his preparations for the tie_breaker race in California. So whether as an educational game to pass the time away or as a supplementary school exercise, there are ten very useful printable activity sheets on this topic alone. The Route 66 Word Search challenges the player to finding 18 words embedded in the maze of letters. The Route 66 Vocabulary and Crossword sheets each contain 10 questions that will surely stretch one's thinking muscles. Equally interesting are the Draw and Write Page, the Challenge, the Alphabet Activity, the Tic_Tac_Toe, the Map Activity, and Theme Paper, all from the same Route 66 Printable series. Lastly, its Bookmarks and Pencil Toppers is a fitting hand_and_eye coordination project for a preschooler.
For anyone not familiar with the concept, these puzzles presents you with a grid of letters, seemingly all jumbled up, and a list of words. Your challenge is to find all of the words hidden within this grid. These puzzles are often designed as word searches for kids with a short list of simple words, and with those words only appearing in the grid in natural directions (horizontally left to right, and vertically top to bottom). However, the searches can be aimed at any age group, using far more complex lists of words and with the words appearing in any of all 8 possible directions.
