Make a Crossword Puzzle Challenge

In the “Crosswords” episode of the Cozy Rainbow podcast, Ms. Haddad speaks with Ms. Roberta. Ms. Roberta was a teacher in South Korea for 10 years. When Ms. Roberta was a kid, she loved doing brain teasers and crossword puzzles in the back of magazine books.

We answers questions like: who invented crossword puzzles? What is the world’s largest crossword puzzle? Were crosswords ever illegal?
