This interactive activity will get your students out of their seats, solving clues, and playing detective!
Students will read a short story about Dave, the Detective. Dave has gone missing and the students need to find him! First, they need to pass the Detective Test (questions about the story). Then, they receive their certified detective certificate! Next, students will look for clues around the room to find Dave. After Dave is found, students will create a story about what happened to Dave!
How do the clues work?
- There are six clues for students to find and solve. You need to place the clues around the room before the students come into class. The very last clue requires students to go to the gym. If you cannot access a gym, I have included a blank page of clues where you can create your own to fit your room or school's layout.
A step-by-step guide on how to organize this activity is included.
A fun reading and writing activity that kids love! Best of all, students get to cut out a mustache and wear mustaches while they solve the case!
