Who doesn't love a good mystery! This activity requires your students to use their knowledge of the age of exploration to solve 4 cold case files. This resource includes:
- 3 leveled reading passages for easy differentiation (high, medium, low)
- Detective's Journal
- Lesson Plan
- Student Directions
- Evidence Chart
- Cold Case Task Cards
- Suspect List
This resource is best used as a review or reinforcement activity, and has always taken me two 1hr class periods to complete with 5th graders. My kiddos absolutely loved this activity and I'm sure yours will too.
As always, rate, review, and follow!
