This is a word search puzzle for kids. It is intended for students in Grades 2-5 , but older children (and adults) will enjoy it too.

How can I help the planet with this puzzle?

And speaking of helping the planet – I realize this is a printable word search puzzle – so try printing this on a piece of scrap paper.

And did you know there are more sustainable options for printer paper?

Such as 100% post-consumer recycled paper and paper made from “non-tree” products such as sugar cane, bamboo, hemp, and even elephant dung!
