Running Time: Self-paced* 

Based on the traditional word search, students stand in a 360* cylindar with letters spanning on the floor to the ceiling. Hidden within the mass of letters are terms from the lessons they experience in this unit. By staring at the first letter of a vocabulary word, students start on a yellow line that runs across the word as they move their head. Once students get to the last letter, they pause and allow the word to be fully highlighted and checked off the list.
