The default scenario of this mystery is Who Killed Mr. Conic, but you can change that to be any crime/mystery with any person. When the students complete the activity with these default settings, they will discover the thief, what they stole and where they stole it from.
To use this Scavenger Hunt Activity, before class print the activity cards included in your file and hang them around your room. As students solve the equations, they look around the room for their answer to see what clue they should eliminate.
Each answer is associated with either a suspect, a weapon or a location. When a student gets the answer, that option is eliminated from the mystery. When they are finished, students will only have one suspect, one weapon and location left, and they will have solved the mystery!
