Any examples would be great! I teach extra enrichment activities to 1st-5th graders, so any grade level would help. My email is smithw@vail.k12.az.us. Thanks!

On  July 21, 2013,  Buyer asked:
Hello! Can't wait to start using this but I'm not exactly sure how to begin implementing it and how you use the graphic organizers. Do you read mysteries to the kids? Do you have any examples? How do you use the clue cards? Thanks for any additional information you can provide:) Wendy Smith

On  July 22, 2013Superlative Science answered:
Yes, I read mysteries and use the graphic organizers for those. What grade level are you? I can give you some good examples for your level. The clue cards are for whatever is in the crime scene bag. For example, I could put a magnifying glass in a paper bag... Aka the crime scene bag. Clues: starts with the letter m, detectives use it, scientists use it, it help you see better, it is a noun, etc. I hope this helps. :)
