Mental Clue is a fun, whole-group game that works well as a transitional activity between lessons or during wait times, such as standing in line. It only takes a few minutes to play a round, and your students will love it!
In this game, the students will need to solve a “Who Done It” type of mystery. They will process the clues mentally and use deductive reasoning to arrive at a conclusion.
One player decides who committed the crime, where it took place, and the tool that was used. This person keeps it a secret for the rest of the class to solve. One at a time, the students make a guess until finally the mystery suspect, place, and tool are identified. Directions for play are included.
Just print the posters and hang them in a prominent location in your room during the month of December. Enjoy!
