Product Description
This holiday activity has the students read a bunch of clues, look at a map, and fill in a table to organize the clues so they can determine who polluted Crystal Lake. Using the clues, the students should be able to determine which factory is responsible.

The crime itself is fairly easy to solve, the real work comes when the students write their CER. This part of the worksheet looks like this:

After completing the reading and note-taking, you must determine who polluted Crystal Lake. You must write your answer and prove it using CER.

C = your claim. Which factory polluted the water?

E = Evidence. You must discuss all the evidence against the factory you think polluted the water and evidence explaining why it can’t be the other factories

R =Reasoning. This ties it all together. What is the evidence telling you?

This activity involves organizing information, problem solving, and backing a claim with evidence. It is everything you need to make the holiday fun!
