Geometry Math Mystery Activity: Case of The Giant Goblin. Easy prep! Just Print & Solve! OR NEW Google Docs option to save paper!

Students must use their geometry 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 Hook

A 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: Area of Parallelograms

Clue 2: Volume of Rectangular Prisms with Decimals

Clue 3: Area of Triangles

Clue 4: Area of Compound Figures

Clue 5: Surface Area of Rectangular Prisms and Cubes

(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.

Represent three-dimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles, and use the nets to find the surface area of these figures. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by packing it with unit cubes of the appropriate unit fraction edge lengths, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths of the prism. Apply the formulas π = π­ πΈ π© and π = π£ π© to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
Find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes; apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
