Product Description

Mini-mysteries are not only fun brain teasers, but also practice listening and inferential skills. They are carrots for the end of the day, or even bell ringers. Alternatively, early finishing or talented students could read the mysteries on their own. The most obvious methods of using these 15 tales are to read each one out loud or to show them on your screen. The students then guess the solutions. If you want them to work a bit harder, they could record and explain their guesses on the included worksheet, and write their own story, using the guidelines. The solutions are on a different page from the story and its question, so that students cannot see them accidentally; that would really spoil the fun! Meet Sherjock Foams and Dr Jotson, teachers Noah Lot and Ms Teri, wild teenager Robin M. Blind, riddler Chris P. Bacon, and Liam and his grandmother, Anne Teak.

Included in the resource:

15 vividly illustrated mini mysteries.

An optional tips page, explaining the most common mystery/ riddle clue types.

An optional working page, so students can write down their guesses, and keep a tally of how many mysteries they got right.

A mini-mystery writing advice sheet, to guide students in writing one of their own.

A simple teacher rubric to mark the students’ own mini-mysteries.
