Nothing like a good criminal investigation to liven up math class!
Based off my popular CSI projects, I have created CSI: Whodunnits? The Whodunnits plan to focus on single content topics as opposed to units and will focus more on skill building than application. Every day can't be a project day, so Whodunnits can be an engaging out of their seat activity to practice important skills.
In a Whodunnit?, students will work in teams to solve 10 practice problems that increase in difficult. After each answer they will receive a clue. Similar to the popular board game Clue, there will be a fictional "murder" the goal will be to determine the "killer", the scene of the crime and the method. Scenes will be placed around the room and the students will have at it.
In this 10 page document you will be given an outline for how to implement the project, a student worksheet and 10 "Clues" to be printed and plastered to the wall.
An answer key has been added to the end of the file for your convenience.
EVERYTHING IS ALIGNED TO THE COMMON CORE! YAY!
