Item description

Celebrate Chinese New Year with a Word Search with a Twist. These interactive & printable puzzles are fun and engaging. Suitable for Middle school students, 5th to 8th graders.


A Word Search to help introduce vocabulary associated with the Chinese New Year. A great introduction/starter activity to the celebrations of Chinese New Year. It helps to improve proofreading skills.


There are 2 different word search puzzles – same clues, different layout.


On the printable copies, the word TANGYUAN & NIAN GAO have been highlighted in red. These could be used for questions or for a little research into what these two terms mean; this could then generate some further discussion.


Using the words listed in the puzzle you could ask learners to get into small groups to make posters – see how many of the words they can use – this could generate a competitive element between small groups.


All materials allow for differentiated learning and include the following:

printable copies

interactive puzzles with and without timings (double click the index.html file or drag it into the *browser’s URL bar)

Set of answers


Interactive versions (index.html) can be run through an interactive whiteboard or added to individual computers. Great for individual, pair or group work. If used in small groups, timings can encourage healthy competition between groups.
