Grab this July 4th word search and fireworks coloring pages for a simple learning activity to add to your July 4th holiday fun!
I love word searches! Unfortunately, my kids do not. Yet! In an effort to get them hooked, I’ve started making fun word searches for them.
There are so many benefits to word search puzzles! They help children understand word structure and spelling. Word searches also help children strengthen working memory and emphasize computational thinking skills like persevering to finish complex problems and encouraging problem-solving.
Computational Thinking Skills
This July 4th word search is a great way to strengthen logical reasoning and computational thinking skills. Computational thinking can be used to solve problems in almost all areas of our lives and helps kids develop some pretty great life skills that can apply to a variety of situations.
A computational thinker approaches problems by experimenting and playing to solve a problem that might have more than one possible solution, working together with others to reach a common goal.
These skills help kids to learn how to persevere when faced with a difficult problem, find and fix errors in complex problems.
A computational thinker learns to design and make solutions for open-ended problems, and learning and understanding their own strengths and weaknesses.
