Dear Parent,

Here are the Benefits of Puzzle for the Brain

Through a 21-year study published in June by doctors at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, senior citizens who worked crossword puzzles four days a week faced a 47 percent lower risk of dementia than those who did them once a week.

Dr. Robert Friedland, a professor of neurology at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, has studied the effects of intellectual stimulation in preventing Alzheimer's disease and other age-related neurological disorders. People who are more intellectually active from age 20 to 60 are less likely to get Alzheimer's.

The idea applies to educational activities (such as taking a class or learning a new skill) as well as recreational activities (solving a puzzle).

Crossword puzzles are effective in classrooms because they step outside the usual structure of schoolwork. It's a fun way to get at the same kind of learning.
