Product Description
Geometry Math Mystery Activity: Case of The Giant Goblin. NO PREP, just print and go! 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.
