    Bundle Description

    Students engage in developing skills and strategies to put information together from two sources. Students engage in a mystery where they must use a case file and a crime scene photo to make inferences based on the evidence provided. Inferential questions challenge students to find valid evidence to defend their inferences. Once they have analyzed the texts, students synthesize the information by solving the crime.

    This is a junior set of mysteries that are geared towards 3rd through 6th Grade.

    When it comes to work, we know the importance of a simple setup. These are all PDF files, so downloading and using these files is simple and easy or your students can now fill in the answers online and submit them to you by email or LMS systems.

Can your students figure out which father played the ultimate game of trick-or-treat on Pete?

    A Chain of Events

    A car crash, followed by a robbery! Who stole Mrs. Diane Mund's diamond necklace? What seems like a simple car accident might be more than originally thought. Can your students use the clues to figure out where to look for Mrs. Mund's necklace?

    Your students will be stronger at inferring with this activity because:

    ✐Students are engaged in the work by taking the role of detective and engaging in fun mysteries.

    ✐The questions are inferential in nature and presented in an organizer that helps students understand that all good inferences need valid evidence.

    ✐Students can work in pairs and argue their viewpoints based upon the evidence they have gathered for the inferences they make.

    ✐These arguments lead to stronger reasoning skills, and provide a self-assessment opportunity for sorting which inferences are strong from those that are weaker.

    ✐Students hone their writing skills as the final question asks them to synthesize all information to create a final reflection of the mystery.

    How each lesson works:

    ⛏Students read a mystery scenario and view a picture that serves as "The Crime Scene".

    ⛏Students read through inferential questions and use the text and picture to create evidence.

    ⛏They must determine valid evidence from evidence not connected to their inference.

    ⛏Students debate their inferences and evidence to strengthen their reasoning.

    ⛏In the end, they write a final answer that puts all the clues together.
