Nothing like a good criminal investigation to liven up social studies! In this activity, students will work in teams to investigate the culprit of six fictional thefts. The criminal has mixed up history and left it disarray. Students must discern fact from fiction to preserve history forever! Teams will work to build a case and present their findings to the court. Hopefully they are convincing enough to win the verdict to catch the criminal.
Be the cool teacher :-)
