Word finds are simple to use. Just choose which one you want, print, and go! You can even print the answer key and let students check their own work as they finish.

If desired, you can make the word searches reusable. Simply laminate or put in a plastic sheet protector and give your student a dry erase marker to complete the activity. When your student is finished, she can wipe it off and have it ready for the next student.

After your student completes the word find, consider asking him to use the words to write complete sentences or a paragraph. Alternatively, you could ask your student to research and explain how each word in the word search is related to the moon.

If desired, take time to learn even more about the moon.
