Product Description
The Westing Game is an incredibly fun, but confusing mystery! It is the perfect resource for studying clues, character traits & development, setting, symbolism, critical thinking, and text features.
Using a “case file” will help teach students note-taking, organization and logical thinking skills as they do their best to solve the case.

TRACK CLUES:
• Whether you work as a whole class or divide students to work together into small groups, present each investigator with their own copy of the Case File (hole punch & secure at top of manila folder for authentic look or simply secure in regular 3-hole folder)
• Each day, before handing out books to each group—secure the rest of the pages with a rubber band from top to bottom, so students do not remove to read ahead
• As you or students read the book, instruct investigators to record details about the character and their actions in the Case File. Remember to add page numbers so they may be able to look back and reference those clues later!
• Every few chapters, reorganize groups and compare notes with new group members/partners
• Encourage class discussions by periodically sharing predictions and reasons for who may be responsible for what happened to Sam Westing
