This packet is designed to have students apply learning comprehension strategies reading in a fun and exciting way.
I would recommend printing out page 3 and putting in in a binder or gluing it on the front of a folder. Then, have your students complete this packet as an individual, whole group or small group project during and after their reading. Once they are done, it can go in their "detective files". Then, if and when you have them complete another packet, they can put it in their detective files. By the end of the year they should have an entire file to send home and use as work samples.
