This is a simple PDF of something I created for my 2nd grade students. I printed the briefcases out in color on regular paper, and the magnifying glasses in color onto cardstock. I glued the briefcase to a simple manilla folder, and laminated everything.
Tip: When laminating the magnifying glasses, be sure to cut out the circle in the middle first, so that when you laminate them, there is a blank "window" for the students to look for, so they may use them almost like real magnifying glasses!
I used these for math addition and subtraction word problems, where the detectives or "agents" used their magnifying glasses to search for and highlight the clue words that helped them solve the case!
The students absolutely loved seeing the briefcases on their desk because they knew they had a new case to crack!
****These could be used for a variety of different things in your classroom! Reading, Sight words...etc!
