Product Description
By popular demand, all my clue by clue mysteries in one big bundle. This is a growing bundle so you'll get notice when I add Clue by Clues in the future!

Clue by clues are printable mystery activities that help students practice critical thinking skills and conversation. Students are given a mystery or puzzle to solve. They are then given a set of clues to discuss in their groups. The catch is that they only get one clue at a time. This makes it easier to process the clues and it generates more thinking and more conversation!

Clue by Clues make great warm-up activities, fillers, or time killers for those last minutes of class and early finishers. They can be critical thinking and close reading activities that teach students to look for details, synthesize information from different sources, apply prior knowledge about the world, and to recognize the logic of a claim and evaluate its validity.

While students are solving the mysteries they are also developing their spoken language skills, using language such as:

* Modal verbs of speculation: She must have forgotten her keys, It could have been the butler
* Opinion language: I think...., I’m positive..., I’m not sure...
* Hedging: It’s possible, probably, maybe, it’s not impossible.
* Conclusions: That means that...
* Emphasis: There’s no way that...
* Hypotheticals: What if he didn’t do it, If he was at the movies, he couldn’t have done it.

They are also a lot of fun! Which means students love them and are engaged!

Each Clue by Clue comes with teacher's notes on how to use them, hints to help students along, a full solution. Many also have discussion questions.
