# Area Math Mystery Activity ~GRADE BUNDLE~ Case of The Abducted Alien

Supporting document included
This Area Math Mystery Differentiated Bundle contains all of the grade versions for the Case of the Abducted Alien available (Grades 3-5). This bundle is great if you need to differentiate within your classroom because the clues are interchangeable between the 3rd - 5th grade editions. You may also find this a good option to customize this math mystery to better suit your class.

NO PREP, just print and go! Use the video to introduce the activity in a fun way. After viewing, students must continue with the paper part of the activity to solve the case.

Customary and metric options provided. Please note that alternate options are offered within the one PDF file for the 3rd grade copy. Two separate files are offered for the 4th and 5th grade versions, marked with customary/metric for you to choose from.

- The math mystery PDF files for each grade level (3rd, 4th and 5th)
- An editable suspect list with two premade alternative lists to change the mystery solution
- The MP4 video file for the Video Hook (optional to use to introduce this activity in a fun way).

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 the 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.
