### Description

Easter Math Mystery "Case of The Egg Thief." GRADE 3. Easy prep! Print and solve option OR go paperless with the new Google Slides option provided to complete the worksheets digitally. Students will need to answer a variety of math problems that will help them solve who the Egg Thief is! Engage and motivate your students with this unique and fun way to review their math skills This Easter.

--> I've also added a PowerPoint that contains the Worksheets as images with editable textboxes for those who use Microsoft.

Editable Suspects list added to the packet. This way you can change the suspect names and alter the mystery outcome. There are also two alternative pre-made lists you can use instead. This is a great option if your students have already done this mystery story before and you need to change the mystery answer.

There are five clues to crack to solve the case:

- Clue 1: Reading and Writing Time (Five minute intervals)

- Clue 2: Fractions (Shaded Model Representations)

- Clue 3: Making 100 - Adding/Subtracting with fill in the number blanks

- Clue 4: Multiplying single digits by Multiples of Ten (double digits only)

- Clue 5: Place Value (Value of the Underlined Digit)

- A suspect declaration sheet

- Printable awards to give to students who solve the case.

How long will this activity take?

Time to complete will vary anywhere between 30mins - 2 hours or more! It mainly depends on how familiar your students are with the math mystery format, as well as how difficult they find math skills covered in the particular mystery. Please check the math skills outlined in the clues above to help determine suitability for your class. I highly recommend pacing this activity by giving students one clue at a time. Once the whole class has completed a clue, then move on to the next clue either within the same lesson or the next math session. New math content presented? Make a lesson out of it by modeling the math before diving into the clue. I like to say, "we must learn something new before attempting the next clue." There are lots of ways to implement this activity in your classroom, learn more in the blog post link below:
