Product Description

Product Information: This activity a fun way to practice various questions about the periodic table of elements. There are many ways in which you could complete this activity, but this is how I play it in my class:

1) Print out the clues on colorful sheets of paper. Cut the clues out and place them around your classroom.

2) Provide each student with a ‘The Food Thief Mystery’ answer sheet. Prior to beginning the activity, I ask the students to make a hypothesis. They place a star next to the suspect, the food, the location and the time that they think is correct. I feel that my students are a little more invested when they have made a guess at the beginning.

3) This is up to you, but I allow my students to walk around the room with their own copy of the periodic table of elements. You could also project one for the whole class to see.

4) The correct answers to the clues will tell students which suspects, locations, foods and times they should cross off. By the end of all 20 clues, they should have one remaining from each section. The correct answer is… Izzy Iodine, tacos, office + 2:00

This mystery activity is a fun + engaging way for students to practice the elements.
