Each year before reading “The Tell-Tale Heart”, I set up a crime scene in my classroom to resemble the events that take place in the story. This introductory activity grabs students’ attention while incorporating science and math standards!!!

I divide my class into groups of 4. In groups, students decide on their job to inspect and investigate this tragic crime scene! The 4 jobs are:
Evidence Recorder
Sketch Artist
Crime Scene Reporter
Hypothesis Analyzer

After the crime scene has been thoroughly analyzed, we begin reading “The Tell-Tale Heart”. Students use the during reading graphic organizer to make connections between the crime scene and Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Tell-Tale Heart”.
