Product Description

Graphs 4th Grade Math Mystery: The Case of the Greedy Gnome

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Math Skills Required to Unlock Clues

There are five clues to crack to solve the mystery:

Clue 1: Read and Interpret Line Plots

Clue 2: Read and Interpret Pictographs

Clue 3: Read and Interpret Line Graphs and Area Graphs

Clue 4: Read and Interpret Pie Charts

Clue 5: Read and Interpret Bar Graphs

Students must use critical thinking skills to figure out what the clue is telling them to eliminate from the list of possibilities. Sometimes the clue will tell you what to eliminate, some clues will tell you what to keep - hence to eliminate the alternative. Some clues are tricky! I recommend pausing to discuss as a class if your students become confused with a clue.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Multiple Uses

- Suitable for independent, pairs, or group work.

- Use as part of your math centers, add to your sub tubs, make it part of your early finisher tasks, give for homework, or make it part of your classroom practice/review sessions.

I 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."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.
