Case files are my absolute favorite "think outside the box" activity in my classroom; for me and the students. Case files consist of brain teasers that will make your students think critically about facts and pay attention to detail. I used this resource in my classroom and each week the students looked forward to finding out the answer to the case file and were excited to try the next week. I used these in my 4th and 5th grade classrooms and they adored it. I also did it at home each week with my husband and friends (even at staff meetings) and it was fun for all ages. It is great for team building and 21st century learning skills.
Included in this product is one case file for each week of the school year and directions on how to run this activity in your classroom.
