Crossword puzzles help students enhance their vocabulary, lateral thinking, reasoning and analytical abilities. Deciphering solutions from the given clues help young minds develop cognitive skills such as making inferences, evaluating alternatives and drawing conclusion. Learning becomes enjoyable as different mental faculties are challenged and solving a crossword puzzle results in a sense of personal achievement, which is vital for personality development. Crossword is also an interesting and effective educational tool for students and teachers alike.
