Simplifying (Reducing) Fractions will be so much fun with this Math Mystery Activity 'Case of The Shogun's Sword.' Students will find themselves in Japan during the year 1850, helping the Shogun solve who switched his precious sword. It's a great way to get lots of practice in simplifying (reducing) fractions to the lowest terms. 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.

PLEASE NOTE: **An editable suspect list also included in the download.

There are FIVE clues to crack to solve who switched the Shogun's Sword:

Clue 1 - Simplifying/Reducing Fractions

Clue 2 - Simplifying/Reducing Fractions

Clue 3 - Simplifying/Reducing Fractions

Clue 4 - Simplifying/Reducing Fractions

Clue 5 - Simplifying/Reducing Fractions

PLEASE NOTE - In this 3rd grade version, the denominators of simplified answers are mainly 2, 3, 4, 5, and 10. A few fractions are given in the already reduced form to help give students the confidence and ability to look at a fraction and determine whether it already is in its simplest form (these fractions may have denominators of 7/9).

You will also receive teacher instructions, a story, suspect list, suspect declaration sheet, answer sheets, and printable awards. A GLOSSARY page included at the very end.

Thank you and enjoy!
