A code and cipher mystery.
Gardening is a lot like painting a picture. It is not the size of the picture that matters, it’s the creating of it. The students at Maitland School have been creating and tending their one meter vegetable mini garden since the start of spring in the build up to the School Gardens Competition.
Tomorrow is the date set for members of the public to come in to the school and vote for their favorite vegetable patch. Room 1’s mini garden is the favorite to win because their vegetables look healthy and inviting. The students are planning on turning the vegetables into soup to raise funds for a school trip when the competition is over.
When the students arrive at school this morning they are greeted with a dreadful sight. Room 1’s garden plot is all empty and there is nothing left to be seen except muddy footprints.
The students' task is to apply their thinking skills and solve the clues to reveal the perpetrators.
