This free printable US Presidents Word Search puzzle features the names of all 46 presidents.
Just in time for President’s Day, we have a free Printable US Presidents Word Search! I remember back in 5th grade having to learn the names of all the presidents in order.
I also remember that the reward to learn them was a Marathon candy bar – anyone else remember those or the days when teachers gave candy bars as rewards??
Even though there were a few less names on the list back then, I think it would have been easier with some reinforcement like this presidential puzzle!
The puzzle is a fun way to reinforce recognition of these presidential names.

The US Presidents Word Search contains the hidden names of all 46 presidents of the United States. For names that are duplicated for two presidents, i.e. Adams and Roosevelt, those names are each hidden in the puzzle twice.
Although he served two separate presidential terms, Cleveland is only in the puzzle once since it was the same person.
All the words can be found by searching vertically, horizontally or diagonally.
For an extra challenge, can you memorize all 46 names?

(FREE Printable US Presidents Word Search) I love doing these word searches all the time, thanks for sharing this one with us-
Everyone in our house has attempted to do this puzzle and we can only find 2 B’s in the whole puzzle and neither of them spells Bush or Obama. Is anyone else finding these names?
Thanks for spotting the puzzle error! We have fixed it!
I’m still only seeing 2, top right corner and in the 10th row from the top. One starts Buren (no Van though?) and the other Buchanan. Am I missing any more?
One of the links had the wrong puzzle, but now you should get to the correct one whether you print from the word link OR from the image.
The one that printed for me does not use the repeated twice. They are only there once. Van Buren is still in two separate places. I printed on 4-26-16
