Wrap Up Black History Month With A Hidden Figures Word Search


February is almost over, and your black history month studies may be coming to an end.  This winter I had the privilege of seeing the film Hidden Figures.  The movie inspired me, as it told the stories of three African American female scientists who worked at NASA during segregation.  I created this free black history word search and included the names of these three women, and many other hidden (and some, not so hidden) figures from black history.  I hope you and your students enjoy this word search.


Since your students may not be familiar with some of the names in the word search, use it as a challenge.  Tell them they can earn extra credit if they research a lesser known name included on the word search.  This will encourage your students to learn more about this part of American history.



Enjoy!
