Why use crosswords in the classroom?

Crosswords provide a nice change-of-pace from the usual textbook or worksheet practice. Puzzles are a lot more fun! Crosswords also require exact answers and correct spelling, which is always a nice bonus. 

Printable crosswords, like the ones here, are very flexible. They can be assigned to be done in class or as take-home work. You can even ask kids to work in partners to complete them, if you know some students may struggle to succeed.
