This activity combines the skill of solving systems of linear equations by substitution, elimination and graphing with the classic board game CLUE. Students will use the clues they gather from correctly solving equations to solve the mystery of Who Killed Mr. and Mrs. Y.

This kit offers two ways to use this activity.
Use as a Scavenger Hunt: The download includes 24 full-color cards for you to print and hang around your room for a class activity. As students solve the equations, they look around the room for their answer to see what clue they should eliminate.
Use as an Individual Activity: The download also includes a version that has all of the necessary clue information so students can complete this activity outside of the classroom. This is perfect for students who were absent during the scavenger hunt!
In both versions, the worksheet contains 20 systems of linear equations, and each answer is associated with either a suspect, a weapon or a location. When a student gets the answer, that option is eliminated from the mystery. When they are finished, students will only have one suspect, one weapon and location left, and they will have solved the mystery!
