Crossword puzzles!

Posted on August 4, 2014 by Lesley Arnold

I’ve just discovered the New York Times “The Learning Network” for students ages 13 and older. It’s a blog with lots of news to read, but also has a great crossword section! If you like crossword puzzles, you can do them online, or you can print them out to use with a pencil. I like to print out a puzzle so that I can carry it around with me, set it down, and then go back to it when I feel like it without having to go onto the computer. There are many topics to choose from. I tried the “Life in Colonial America” topic and was stumped at 25 down. What would the two-word answer be for “outfit worn by colonial Americans on horseback?”
