I am about to being a mystery genre unit with my students. Throughout this unit I am going to use the 2 sheets attached in this resource to create packets to fill out as we learn the features of a mystery.
The front page of this resource is "The Detective's Dictionary," containing important vocabulary correlated to the mystery genre.
The second page of this resource is the page I would use for each mystery book we read. It contains space to write in suspects, detective, witnesses, setting, plot, clues, and red herrings.
