This activity is designed to engage high school students in the process of gathering information from a story, identifying patterns within that information, and making an inference about how one character in the story met his untimely demise.

The activity includes:
* The Situation - describing who died and when
* The Solution - describing the actual event and who was responsible
* 8 Character Cards
* Detective Sheet - for students to gather their information
* You're Ready to Make an Inference! Sheet - for students to make their educated guess of the identity of the murderer
