Free Martin Luther King Jr. Word Search Printable Post Preview: You’ll find a free download with an MLK word search set with two different levels of difficulty. There are also other Martin Luther King Jr. resources.
While any time of year is a good time to learn about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his work with the Civil Rights movement and his powerful words and actions, his birthday in January makes itself a natural time to focus on his life and works. So, why not take the time to do that this year!
I have multiple printables on the site for learning about Martin Luther King, Jr. and they’re all free. So, you might want to grab this brand new free Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Word Search Printable Set. You might also love the free eight-page Martin Luther King Jr. Printable Packet or the free MLK Crossword Puzzle Printable.
Both the easier and the more difficult version of the MLK word find have the option to print a copy with a grid puzzle area or a more open area that just has a border around the puzzle area.
Both versions of the puzzle have blackline graphics, so you can allow students to color in the pictures. If you prefer, however, the puzzle could also be printed on cool winter colored papers instead of plain white paper.
