Students will love playing the game around the room or building. This game is similar to the Clue Jr game. My students love playing this game over and over. The students will try to solve the mystery of who stole the money. You can make up a fun back story but either way they will love it. This game is practicing three skills.
-Counting money and solving money word problems
-Telling Time (includes word clues)
-Determine between Fact and Opinion sentences
There are blank clue cards so you can differentiate or change the clues to what you feel your students need.
There are three types of clues to roll, find and solve. 1. Character clues 2. Book Clues and 3. Clock Clues. Find all three and students will locate the missing answers in a designated space to self check when they are done.
Best feature of this is that this game does not require grading unless you want to look over their answer sheets to see what they did.
My students love playing in groups of three or four and compete against the other teams. They can only have one person roll and up looking at the clues at a time. Each team keeps playing at the same time, taking turns around their team rolling and finding clues. The first team ready to solve announces and checks to see if they are correct. The other teams can also keep competing until everyone has had a chance to solve the case. I usually award them paper trophies for their place or good sportsmanship.They love it and ask to play. Sometimes we even move the desks around to make the room look like several rooms with the desks as the walls. The room is the gameboard.
Simply print the clue cards and clue sheets for the student detectives to check off as they go. Hide the answers under each and pull out the missing Book clue and the missing clock clue. The Character will reveal him or herself by determining if the sentence underneath is a fact or opinion.
