What is a Word Search?
A word search is an activity where you find specific words hidden within a grid of letters.
If you hear someone mention a word find or word seek, those are usually the same thing.
Why Do Word Searches?
Doing word puzzles such as word searches are a fun way of exercising your brain.
While doing word searches won’t necessarily make you smarter or increase your IQ, I believe that there are still many reasons to do them.
There is no doubt that word searches require focus and concentration.
I think that it is a great idea to use word searches to help reinforce spelling and vocabulary words.
Many word searches have decoy words hidden within them, just a few letters off from the actual word that needs to be found. These decoy words help make it essential to really focus and know the correct spelling of the word that needs to be found.
Another reason some people do word searches is simply that they enjoy doing them. Finding each word is like a small victory, and completing the entire word search gives a sense of accomplishment.
I have found that they are also a great way to unwind and clear your mind. Word finds require such concentration and focus it is difficult to think of much else. So next time you need to get your mind off of something, try doing a word search!
