- Included in EACH set are 25 Clue Time sections. Each section contains three clues that describe a famous person, an animal, a country, a famous historic place, etc.
- The directions are this: What kind of detective are you? Here is your chance to test your own knowledge! You will be given three clues. Try to determine what is being described. Record your answers on the chart. When you have answered all 25, you can request an answer key from your teacher. Give yourself 2 points if you answered it correctly without any help (internet, teacher, classmate, etc.). Give yourself 1 point if you got the answer correct but needed help. You earn 0 points if you had the wrong answer. Grab and drag the “detective hat” (or magnifying glass, badge) to the points you earned. When you are all done, add up your total points to determine what your detective ranking is. Good luck!
