Dinosaur Word Search Helpful Hints-
Look for two letters instead of the word- We know archaeopteryx is a tough word. (It sounds like arc-key-opter-icks) The easier way to find tough words is to pick either the first letter, or the last letter. We picked the last letter, and looked over the word search for all the X’s. Once we found one, we looked at all the letters around X for a Y, because those are the last two letters of the word. Doing it this way, we were able to find all the words in 2 minutes. Can you do it faster?
Colour the words in– Pick your favourite colour, or pick a different colour for every word! Circle the words, then fill in your circle with colours! For extra fun, colour your favourite dinosaur in your favourite colour, and the rest in your second favourite colour! Turn your dinosaur word search printable into a masterpiece!
Research words– If you’re really stuck, look again at the words you’ve already found. Sometimes the words you’ve already found are hiding the dinosaurs you’re looking for.
