Commonwealth Games 2018 Word Search Find

Commonwealth Games 2018 Word Search Find

The Commonwealth Games 2018 are almost upon us. Build up the excitement with your students with this word search. My class wanted a challenge so I gave them one. This Commonwealth Games word search is huge. Personally I printed it off on A3 paper as it has all of the 70 Nations and Territories that are attending the Commonwealth Games in 2018. I actually “buddied up” some of my struggling students to keep them focused as 70 words takes time. My others loved the competitive challenge. Enjoy
