Product Description
Making inferences is sometimes a hard skill for students to grasp. Relating it to being detectives and mysteries is a fun way to help students understand what an inference is! In this activity, teachers set up a "crime" and a "crime scene" that allows students to make inferences about who committed the crime!

Included:
• Student Inferring recording sheets
• Anchor Chart printables
• Clue Tents
• Crime Scene Do Not Touch Sign
• Crime Scene Writing Wrap Up Activity

How to Set it Up!

1. Come up with a crime.
2. Decide on the person who will commit the crime.
3. Figure out the clues they will leave that will lead your students to make inferences about who it was.
4. Figure out the culprit's motive
5. Set up the clues, caution tape, crime scene sign, clue tents and morning message about a crime to make the crime seem real!
6. Videotape (If you want) the crime being committed

The Lesson:
1. Gather and find all of the clues
2. Record the clues
3. Figure out the background knowledge for each clue
4. Make an inference about who committed the crime based on the clue and the background knowledge
5. To wrap up, have students do a quick write about the crime
