Description

Graphs Review Math Mystery Activity - Case of The Greedy Gnome. Easy prep! Just Print & Solve! Or go paperless with the new Google Slides option provided within your download.

NEW - Distance Learning Update: I've added a Word Document within the folder that contains a Google Doc link to share this resource with your students via Google Classroom or Drive. Parts of the pages are editable so that your students can complete without having to print the pages. Please note, you will need to make a copy of the Google Slides to your drive before you can edit.

Engage and motivate your second-grade students while they practice and review graph skills. Just print and go (or assign the Google Slides for digital learning), your students will have fun trying to figure who the Greedy Gnome is!

Optional video hook available to set the stage to engage when starting this activity. A written version of the story is also included in the PDF. CLICK HERE to VIEW Video Hook

Editable Suspects list added to the packet. This way you can change the gnome 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 who the Greedy Gnome is:

Clue 1 - Bar Graphs

Clue 2 - Pictographs

Clue 3 - Line Plots

Clue 4 - Tally Graphs

Clue 5 - More Bar Graphs!

You will also receive teacher instructions, a story, suspect list, suspect declaration sheet, answer sheets, and printable awards.

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 the 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:
