“The Case of the Missing Manuscript” helps students review the line and space notes on the treble clef. It is the first of my Music Detective series. This resource includes two files of this game, one for PowerPoint and one for SMART Notebook.
Students solve clues by deciphering words using treble clef letter names. This game only uses EGBDF and FACE, no notes above or below the staff.
The story for this game keeps the students engrossed in learning. In the game, they meet a music detective who was given a briefcase holding the first draft of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony. He discovers a note from Beethoven’s friend telling him to go to a mysterious building. Inside, he discovers a fully decorated house. The detective has to follow clues using his knowledge of treble clef notes to find the key to open the case. The students click on items in the room based on the clues; these items, when selected, link them to the next clue.
This game takes approximately two 30-minute classes if you include a short review of the line and space notes (I included a page each for line notes and space notes), although some teachers have reported finishing it much quicker. This lesson would be most appropriate and enjoyable for exceptional 2nd graders up to 5th or 6th grade.
I hope you enjoy this fun, interactive game!
