Print out the word search puzzle with words from Shakespeare's A Mid Summer Night's Dream, told from the mechanicals' perspective (the 'mechanicals' are a troop of amateur actors from Athens) -- you have a choice between an easy word search for younger children and a more challenging word search for older kids and adults.
Encourage the children to find and circle the words listed. I think word searches are a great way to expand and practice vocabulary words and reinforce themes you are studying.
- As you look for the hidden words from the Shakespeare play, remember that they can be horizontal, vertical, or diagonal—frontward or backward.
- Close the template window after printing to return to this screen.
- Set page margins to zero if you have trouble fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE SETUP or FILE, PRINTER SETUP in most browsers).
