This activity is an inquiry based cross curricular activity used for the novel, From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. This activity uses aspects of math, science, health, social studies, and literacy. It is a self guided activity that the students can work on independently or in groups and I have had a great response from the students and my fellow teachers. Attached is the assignment outline and associated rubric, broken down into KTAC.
