This download contains multiple files to help your students learn about mysteries.
First, there is a large, color copy of an original book ("The Mystery of the Missing Pumpkin) for you to print for reading as a group in the classroom and to add to your classroom library. The book also contains bolded words with definitions in a glossary in the back.
Next, there are small black-and-white booklets that you can print for each student. The students can have their own copy of the book, and color it too!
There are 3 levels of questions about the books that have students identify the mystery components (detective, suspect, clue, etc). You can use these as a guided organizer while reading, or as a quiz after reading (or both)! The levels range from low-learners and students with disabilities to grade-level learners.
Finally, there is a file with a graphic organizer and pictures that allows students to put the events from the story in order and write about them.
