Product Description
Spring Activity: Math Mystery - Case of The Bee Bandits {GRADE 3}. NO PREP, just print and go! Engage and motivate your students during math time with this fun math review!

Students will need to answer a variety of math problems that will help them solve who the Bee Bandits are!

This math mystery comes with an optional video hook to set the stage to engage! CLICK HERE to VIEW Video Hook

NEW - Editable Suspects list added to the packet. This way you can change the group names and alter the mystery outcome. There are also two alternative pre-made lists you can use instead. This is a great option if your students have already done this mystery story before and you need to change the mystery answer.

There are 5 clues to crack to solve the mystery:

Clue 1: Dividing by 3
Clue 2: Equivalent Fractions
Clue 3: Area of Rectangles (by multiplying sides) Customary and Metric options provided
Clue 4: Dividing by 4
Clue 5: Making change from \$10.00

How long will this activity take?
Time to complete will vary anywhere between 30mins - 2 hours or more! It mainly depends on how familiar your students are with the math mystery format, as well as how difficult they find math skills covered in the particular mystery. Please check the math skills outlined in the clues above to help determine suitability for your class. I highly recommend pacing this activity by giving students one clue at a time. Once the whole class has completed a clue, then move on to the next clue either within the same lesson or the next math session. New math content presented? Make a lesson out of it by modeling the math before diving into the clue. I like to say, "we must learn something new before attempting the next clue." There are lots of ways to implement this activity in your classroom, learn more in the blog post link below:
