2 x Weights and Measures Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Maths Units

2 x Weights and Measures Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Maths Units

2 x Wordsearch Puzzle sheets on the theme of ‘Weights and Measures’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
