A few years ago, I made this fall themed word search to take to a school fall party, and thought, “Why not also share it on Real Life at Home as long as I’m making it anyway?” It was a great activity at the fall party for a little bit of quiet after a busy fall craft activity.
Okay – that’s not entirely true. I thought about The Homeschool Classroom, because that was back in 2013, just before I decided to merge all of my sites together into a new site – Real Life at Home. But you know what I mean, right?
Words included in the Fall Themed Word Search Printable:
- autumnal equinox
- falling leaves
- harvest moon
This puzzle can be a little tricky in that there is some overlap so you have to be careful to make sure that you’re circling the right word in these instances: fall / falling leaves / leaves (and) autumn / autumnal equinox. (The longest of both of those groups are either in the very first line or the very last line, just as a heads up.)
Additional Educational Opportunities with the Fall Themed Word Search
This fall themed word search also had the much longer phrase thrown in of autumnal equinox. I thought it was fun to put in there, and then gave me an opportunity to talk with even my older kids about the two equinoxes and two solstices of the year and what they meant. I thought it was a nice educational opportunity to include it in the puzzle.
However, if you have a child who is so young that they look at something like “autumnal equinox” and think they can’t find it, then you could always help them with that one or cross it out.
There are other words or phrases in the puzzle that might be ones that kids are unfamiliar with or that they may have heard, but not actually know what they mean. This can be a great opportunity to talk about words and phrases they might not know. Some examples might be: “What is a cornucopia?” or “When is the harvest moon?”
