PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I am always looking for fun ways to do book reports with my students. After finishing a unit on the mystery genre, students created a case file for a mystery novel of their choice. They started with a blank file folder and wrote the title and author of the book on the cover (once project was finished, they wrote “Case Closed” or “Solved” over the title). Inside their file, students inserted a small bag with “evidence” found in the story (i.e. bits of old fabric to represent clothing fibre in story), case notes (chapter summaries), lists of victims, suspects, witnesses, weapons, clues, and red herrings involved with the case. The solution to the mystery is then written on an index card and sealed in an envelope marked “Mystery Solved”.

Included are a rubric and worksheets for:
- Case Notes
- Detective Character Study
- Description of Crime Scene
- List of Victims
- List of Suspects
- List of Witnesses
- List of Weapons
- List of Clues
- List of Red Herrings
- Explanation of Mystery
