Challenging Crosspatch Puzzle Academic Science
Periodic Table Crosspatch Puzzle

Crosspatch puzzles are fun to play with because they may seem simple, at first, but  depending upon the puzzle, there might be more challenges than first thought. This Periodic Table crosspatch puzzle is an example of that.

First, you need to decide which word has either the last number of letters, or the most number of letters, and then fill in the correct blanks in the grid.  Next, similar to the regular crossword puzzles, use letters in the words to locate the elements that share that letter.
