Winter word search for grade 5.  Free printable 5th grade winter word search with answer page included. A relaxing educational activity for kids.

When I was a kid, I loved doing word searches. I found it relaxing and allowed me to tune out the rest of the world for a few minutes.

The parent in me loves that they are also an educational activity. As the child is focusing on and searching for the letters that make up each word, they are naturally and inadvertently working on spelling.

Difficulty Level

With medium difficulty, it would be perfect for upper elementary aged students, especially 5th graders.

This winter word search has 21 winter words for kids to find and circle in a 17 X 17 grid of uppercase letters.

15 of the words are from our winter themed grade 5 spelling list. The other 6 words are a mix of 3rd, 4th and 5th grade words.

The words are hidden in every direction – horizontally, vertically, and diagonally: forwards or backwards.

Optional Coloring Activity

For kids that enjoy colouring, there’s some fun images that 5th graders or other elementary aged children might enjoy doing while working on the word search.

There’s a cute penguin and a bird to color. Both are wearing winter hats and dressed for winter.
