Are you looking for an activity to kick off Black History Month? Maybe a vocabulary activity to use during your studies of the Civil Rights Movement. This word search is a great way to get your kids thinking about some of the topics related to that particular time in history.
Word searches can be a fun way to get your students talking about the important events in history, as well as discuss struggles and successes during that time. Your students will enjoy this fun word search!
In this word search puzzle, words are found forward, backward, up, down, and diagonally. I would consider it on the challenging side since students are looking for words in all directions, and the content may be more suitable for upper elementary. Please see the word list below.
I use word searches to introduce vocabulary, or even just give it as morning work. Maybe have them look up the words or use them in a sentence. Possibly even illustrate some of them. They are also great to glue in writing notebooks for future writing topics. They offer the perfect opportunity to get your kids talking about key vocabulary. They are perfect for early finishers. Great for a sub, too. How about homework as a family activity. Use this "Civil Rights" word search however you would like in your classroom.
