The Case of the Missing Money
is a set of 28 Task Cards that can be used for a fun geography game to help your students review basic map skills and identify state capitals. Students pretend that millions of dollars have been stolen from a bank. Your students play detective and try to find the location of the missing money by eliminating states one at a time using a map of the United States and the clues on Task Cards. An asterisk (*) next to the page number and on the Case Log means that multiple answers must be listed in the order of the clues given on the Task Card.

DIRECTIONS
• Students read each Task Card and eliminate one or more states and their capital based on the clue.

• They record their answer for each Task Card on their Detective’s Case Log by writing the name of the capital or capitals where the missing money is NOT located. If more than one capital should be eliminated, the correct number is listed in parentheses.

• Then they look at their Detective’s Checklist and find the capital(s) to be eliminated. The states are listed in alphabetical order. They place an (X) on the line to eliminate the state (s) and its capital that is NOT the location where the money has been hidden.

• After all 28 Task Cards have been completed, only one capital and state should be left unmarked – the location of the missing money!

In addition to the Detective’s Case Log and the Detective’s Checklist, Templates, an Answer Key, a List of State Abbreviations, a Map of the United States, an Award Certificate, and directions for playing Scoot are included.
