National Puzzle Day is January 29

Get ready for National Puzzle Day on Friday, January 29. What can you do? Here a few suggestions:

1. Language Arts ~ English, literature, and foreign language teachers can use crosswords, anagrams, or word searches of current vocabulary or spelling words.

2. Math ~ Math teachers can develop number crosswords, sudoku (use colors instead of numbers for small children), or logic puzzles to reinforce skills.

3. Science ~ Science teachers can have students solve cryptograms or ciphers using the scientific method.

4. Social Studies ~ Social studies teachers can turn maps into jigsaw puzzles.

5. Co-Workers ~ Invite your co-workers or fellow students to a New York Times crossword challenge.

6. Family ~ Plan a family puzzle night. Enjoy a jigsaw puzzle or Scrabble or a Rubik's Cube.

7. Read a book like "The Lost Symbol" by Dan Brown. It's full of puzzles as part of the plot.

8. Here's a sudoku puzzle to get you ready for the day!
