Word search printables are an excellent activity for when the kids just need a break. They are educational, but more importantly, they are fun.

Word searches are one of the best games for kids to improve vocabulary, enhance cognitive skills, and foster a love for learning in individuals of all ages.

The Martin Luther King Jr. related words can be found, horizontally, vertically, diagonally, frontwards, or backwards! Just to make it that much harder!

Tip: I recommend either using a highlighter pen or circling around the letters. Do not cross the letters out if you have found a word, as it may be used in another word!

There are 16 black history-related words to find:

Civil Rights
Luther King Jr
Nobel Prize

These words should be discussed openly with your children and explain what each word means and explain why they are related to Martin Luther King Jr.
