Almanacs and Information:
In the not too distant past before the days of Google and Bing, people would use a resource called an Almanac to find quick answers to many of their fact and statistical based questions. Almanacs provide a variety of information from sports scores to election results.
High School & Middle School Puzzler (Combined this week)
Being an election week this weeks puzzler will focus on Presidential elections. We will use a free online almanac from Pearson Education publishing (Pearson is a large publisher of education textbooks and materials).
The Infoplease almanac provides an easy to use format for finding the answers to your questions.
Using this chart in the Infoplease almanac find and enter the five candidates who ran in the 1948 presidential election and determine the winner based on the given election results.
