Product Description
Geometry Activity: Geometry Math Mystery - Case of The Giant Goblin {GRADE 5}. NO PREP, just print and go! Engage and motivate your students during math time with this fun geometry activity!

Students use their math skills to eliminate locations & possibilities so they can find out where the Shrinkinator is to make the Giant Goblin the right size again!

Optional VIDEO HOOK included. This can be viewed in the preview thumbnail section above or CLICK HERE to VIEW Video HookA written story is also included in the PDF file.

NEW - Editable list added to the packet. This way you can change the location 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: Coordinates (One Quadrant)
Clue 2: Area of Rectangles and Squares
Clue 3: Volume (Cubic Units)
Clue 4: Measuring Angles (Protractor Required)
Clue 5: Volume of Rectangular Prisms (L X W X H)

(Customary and Metric options provided)

Pack also includes a suspect declaration sheet, answer sheets, elimination guide and awards.

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 the math skills covered in this 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: Read Blog Post: Five Easy Ways to use Math Mysteries in your Classroom.
