→What is a Mystery Product?
Mystery products are part of my newest product line. Mysteries are a great way for students to practice a skill with a fun twist. In each products, students will complete 20 multiple choice questions. After each question, they willreceive a clue based on their answer. After they have correctly answered each of the twenty questions, students will have solved the mystery.
→What makes this products so great?
These are no prep! (Unless you want to cut the 10 pages of questions in half.)
Students can look at the questions in any order. They can rotate through as quickly (or as slowly) as they need to. This makes management a breeze!
Tracking on the bottom allows students to color in a square as they solve, meaning they won't be confused on which sentences they haven't figured out yet.
A full answer key, means you will be able to quickly determine if/where an error was made!
Sometimes students make a mistake, and that's ok too. These are also self checking. Students will receive clues immediately; so if they receive a clue that contradicts a previous clue the student will know know he has made a mistake.
→Do students have to work with a partner?
Nope! That's up to you! These can be used for independent practice, partner work, or group work. Perhaps you'll give a couple of clues a day which will spread the activity out for the entire week! Use this as a morning work activity, or a fast finisher choice!
Each mystery product includes:
Setup Directions for Teachers
An introduction story to begin the mystery
10 Pages of Probelms (20 problems in all)
2 Recording sheets for students (one for the answers and one for the clue tracking)
A full answer key that mimics the 10 problem pages and 2 recording sheets.
