Description

This Measurement Math Mystery activity will engage and motivate your students! Students will be covering a variety of measurement skills to solve the Case of the Mirror Madness. Both US Customary and Metric Options provided for you to choose from in the download.

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.

An optional Video Hook added to the packet as an exciting way to introduce this Math Mystery to your students. A written story is also provided in the PDF file if you wish to use instead. CLICK HERE to VIEW Video Hook

Editable Scenarios added to the packet. This way you can change the scenarios 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 5 clues to crack to solve the mystery:

Clue 1: Estimating Weight

Clue 2: Reading Thermometers - Fahrenheit (in the customary file) and Celsius (in the metric file) options provided

Clue 3: Reading and Writing Time (5-minute intervals)

Clue 4: Perimeter

Clue 5: Estimating Capacity

Pack also includes a mystery declaration sheet, answer sheets, elimination guide, and 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 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: Read Blog Post: Five Easy Ways to use Math Mysteries in your Classroom.
