Product Description
This St Patrick's Day Reading Comprehension Activity is a Reading Mystery, where students have a fun way to incorporate a range of ELA skills in one.
Students will be required to read the story and complete activities to discover clues. They must also highlight the evidence in the text to show where they found the answers in the activity section. Each clue requires students to critically think to decide which suspects they can eliminate from their suspect list. The last suspect remaining is who is responsible for the 'Fool's gold.'

Video Hook included too for optional use (can now be viewed in the preview thumbnail section OR CLICK HERE TO VIEW VIDEO HOOK

Prep
Everything that you need for this activity is in the download, including the reading passages. Just print, copy for your students and go!

Implementation suggestion: Depending on your students' reading abilities, the ease of this activity may vary. To keep everyone at the same pace, you could read the passages together as a class and then follow up with the activities to fill in the missing letters that will help unlock a clue. For independent work, set a timer for reading only, and then allow them time to answer the questions and re-read the text if they need. If your students find this too easy, I'd recommend the 'Private Eye CSI - Literacy Mysteries' range instead, which requires inferring and more skill to solve the mystery.
If your students are trying to attempt the activity section without reading the passages, instruct them to highlight the evidence in the reading text to show you where they found the answers.

The same 'self-checking feature' included in this design as in my math mystery range.

There are FIVE clues to crack!

SKILLS TARGETED
- Reading
- Comprehension
- Spelling
- Definitions
- Character Traits
- Vocabulary
- Critical Thinking
- Writing (optional on the mystery declaration sheet)

OPTIONAL: After finishing the five clue sheets, an optional mystery declaration sheet can be used to state the culprit. On this declaration page, students report WHO they think is responsible for the Fool's Gold, plus outline the clues discovered along with their elimination reasoning for each.

Fun printable awards in an article format included too! (Shhh.... keep these a secret as they reveal the mystery answer in the newspaper article your little star detective features in.)

You will also receive instructions, answer sheets and an elimination guide.

Your feedback on this resource would be appreciated.


Thank you and enjoy!
