Product Description
Get your students writing with this crime scene activity! Simply set up a crime scene and have your students be the detectives.

Here are my suggestions: Using the shoe prints provided in the download, make it look like someone "broke into" the classroom (obviously, no shattered glass or anything really scary). You could put Elf On The Shelf where he wasn't last seen or even tape him to the chair so it looks like someone was in the classroom. How could Elf On The Shelf tape himself? Put the feet around the classroom so it looks like someone was walking around & as if something Christmasy was taken (maybe remove one of your Christmas items from your classroom).

In this download, students will use the scientific method to discover what happened (observe, ask a question, make a prediction, make a plan, record the results, draw a conclusion). Then, they will use their 5 senses to discover even more. Lastly, they will write Santa a letter explaining what happened to his Elf.

**If you don't have Elf On The Shelf in your classroom - use something else, like a Christmas decoration!

Enjoy!!
