This is a puzzle to go with the short story "By the Waters of Babylon" by Stephen Vincent Benet. This is a fill-in-the-blank worksheet over the story. Students fill in the missing word and circle the letter indicated. If the puzzle is done correctly, the circled words will form a well-known phrase. A short writing assignment is included at the end of the puzzle. I have also included a copy of the puzzle with page number hints for students using the 2008 edition of Elements of Literature, 4th Course. The page numbers help my struggling readers.
