Australia's Capital Cities: word search and mapping exercise

Australia's Capital Cities: word search and mapping exercise

Wordsearches (a.k.a. word maze) are a fun way for your students to learn the capital cities of Australia. The wordsearch is coupled with a map that encourages your students not only to learn the names of the counties but also their location. The puzzles have three levels of difficulty: Easy - Medium - Hard. This will allow you to differentiate according to the abilities of students in your class. Each of the three puzzles has its own answer key. A large map (A4 size) is also provided in the file should you need to use a larger map for your students rather than the smaller one provided in each word search. Altogether there are 7 pages in this file: 3 word searches, 3 answer keys, 1 A4 sized map.
