What happens when a teacher walks in and finds one of her students dead? She turns to a team of investigators (her other students!).
I have created this CSI project for my EESL students. They need to get into teams, read what happened, write down some questions to ask me (the lead detective on the day of the investigation), work as a team to try to fins out who killed one of my students (Rebecca) and what the other three students who were working with her had to do with the crime!
I create a crime scene in my classroom, put clues in it, ask them to take pictures, investigate, cooporate and solve the case. They then have to write a police report that describes the events, their findings and what they believe happened.
The cool thing about this project is that you can decide and change who the killer is and fill in the blanks with even more information!
