You can use the activities in this bundle as stations or individual activities in your classroom. The bundle includes:
Analyzing an argument paragraph based off a Crime and Puzzlement scenario.
Taking Cornell Notes on the elements of Mystery(with Prezi link)
Creating a claim with evidence to support based off an additional Crime and Puzzlement scenario
Exploring the FBI using an online website.
I use these as introduction stations before reading our first mystery novel--however, all of these activities are flexible and can be fit in various educational scenarios.
Activities are aligned with CCSS--argumentative writing and analysis
