Hidden Figures of Black History

It’s February, which means many of us are studying black history in our classrooms.  I recently saw the amazing movie Hidden Figures.  If you have not seen this yet, please check it out.  The African American women featured in this movie accomplished so much while working for NASA, and we

never knew about it.  It made me begin thinking about the many hidden figures in African American history.

In light of the movie, I created this free black history word search. It features many important figures in black history. Some are well known, and other names on the word search are less well known.  If nothing else, it’s a fun way to get your students thinking about black history.

If you’re looking for a way to teach more African American history to your class this month, please look at my
Black History Month Lessons and Pop Up Book bundle.  It is full of rich informational text for your students to learn more about African American history.  Here’s hoping you and your class have a wonderful February.

I also have a wonderful giveaway this week for a $75 Teachers Pay Teachers Gift Card. Happy shopping and Enjoy!
