Your students will LOVE solving the mystery of who stole their report cards. I complete this activity with 1-2 weeks left of school, but you can do it at the end of the quarter!
I divide the students into teams (i.e. Team Mustard, Team White, etc.) to complete this fun activity. I explain that someone has stolen their report cards and I need to get them back; they have to find out who stole them! Students earn the ability to ask for hints to various school staff members (suspects).
**I STARTED HAVING MY KIDS ASK THE STAFF MEMBERS THREE QUESTIONS: WHICH SUSPECT, AID, AND ROOM DO YOU HAVE? This allows them to solve the mystery a little bit quicker.
They record their hints until the very end when they finally guess the correct WHO, WHAT, and WHERE cards. :)
