– Start with the crossword puzzle and fill in the answers from the puzzle. Tell the class to try do figure out what song the crossword puzzle is talking about. Once solved, you can sing the song after each couple of filled in clues or if they are struggling with a clue then sing through the song to find the answer.

– You can let the kids pick any of the numbers (across/down 1-5), they do not have to be answered in order. If you decide to go in order, I would recommend starting with the across clues, as 1-down is a pretty strong clue that may give away the song.

  1. Thanks for sharing all your wonderful ideas! When you post SEARCH, PONDER AND PRAY – CROSSWORD PUZZLE | Created by PrimarySinging.com for personal and church use. Do not distribute. I want to clarify if that means I can not send home a crossword puzzle with each child? Thanks.

    • Hey Danette, Thanks for your question! That’s meant specifically to exclude sharing the files publicly. I’m totally fine with the post being shared, of course, but by sharing the file uploaded somewhere, it cuts out my site where the terms and other pertinent details can be found. 🙂

      I would be just fine with you printing them for the individual kids in your Primary class!! What a great idea!!

      • THANKS! I will print and send home with Senior Primary to prompt a family activity and then the next week review answers and the song at church. 20 minutes gets by so fast!
