Product Description

This NO PREP, original, short fiction text provides reading fun for your fifth and sixth grade students who will pit their wits against C.B. (the story’s student detective), to determine who is telling the truth and solve the mystery.

Students read the text and determine the importance of plot elements that support their inferences and help them to synthesise meaning using their critical thinking ability. Can they do it?

Readers strive to solve the mystery within the passage, just as CB does, without having to resort to the clue which is available for the teacher to share if necessary. A worksheet is included for students to record their answer and use for discussion purposes.
