Free printable Chinese New Year/Lunar New Year word search
The terms Chinese New Year and Lunar New Year are not exactly interchangeable and they've both stirred up controversy in recent years. People in many parts of Asia, and elsewhere in the world, celebrate the Lunar New Year. The dates are not always the same as the Chinese New Year and each region has its own specific foods and traditions.
According to my friends and family living and working in China, it is appropriate to call the holiday the "Chinese New Year" when speaking about Chinese-specific traditions and their spring holiday.
That's why I've decided to call this a "Chinese New Year" word search. =)
The answer key is included and words can be hidden forwards, backwards, and diagonally. This makes the word search a bit more challenging so it can be used with elementary and even middle school students.
Older adults love word searches, too! If you have a word search love in your life, be sure to check out my 101 themed word search puzzle book in print. =)
