Unscramble the Black History words

These free word scramble printables are perfect for black history month either for the classroom, or homeschool.

This black history word scramble is a great game for elementary and middle school-aged kids. I have added two versions of the word game. One has no clues at all, and one has the actual words around the side of the puzzle to make it easier for younger kids.

Print off as many copies as you need and just have fun. Let me know in the comments what your hardest word was.

We also love playing Mad Libs all year round, but this who was mad libs book is another great fun activity to keep them entertained.

The first sheet is the easiest word scramble. They all have 12 words to find, but this version below has the answers written in red around the sides. This will make it much easier for younger children.

The only clue is, all of the words are names of influential African Americans.
