This bundle includes fourteen different "cases" for students to solve a problem while practicing critical thinking and drawing conclusions in a fun way! In each mystery, students are provided with a scenario and the clues they will need. Students then read about 4-5 "suspects" and use the facts provided to solve the case!
Each PowerPoint contains a graphic organizer that can be printed for students to use during the activity. I would recommend doing this before beginning. There is also a slide at the end of each set revealing the correct "suspect" and providing background information.
Be sure to check out the preview file to see how the mysteries work!
