What can children learn from and enjoy at the same time? Riddles and puzzles, that's what!
Puzzles and riddles have an inherent appeal to children, and through play, children can develop new concepts and reinforce skills in curriculum areas such as language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies.
Many sites on the World Wide Web offer puzzles and riddles; some sites provide links to many other sites that also feature puzzles. Visiting such sites engages students in learning through intriguing activities while enabling students to become more computer savvy.

Tips for using puzzles and riddles
Here are some ways to put online puzzles and riddles to work in the classroom:
After students work with a particular kind of puzzle - a crossword, for example - invite them to work in groups to create their own crossword puzzles. Be sure to allow plenty of time for this kind of activity: Making a crossword puzzle, or just about any puzzle, is harder than it might look!
Try thinking of ways that certain games can become cross- curricular. A game of crambo, for example, will teach social studies as well as language arts if you have students invent rhymes that include facts about various states or other geographical areas you're studying. Or use historical figures to play ziggy piggy. You might also have groups of students work on constructing word finds based on, for example, things associated with Abraham Lincoln or another historical figure.
Use online time that students spend on puzzles, riddles, or other fun games as a reward for work well done or behavior you want to encourage.
Invite students to use a unit theme, such as weather in science class, as the basis for creating a group of games: for example, a crossword puzzle, word jumble, word find, and hangman game. Students might work in groups or pairs to create the games.
