Mysteries are exciting for students. My kids love them.
Rudolph is a 21st century newcomer to Santa’s team of reindeer and they are not happy about Santa’s decision to make him the leader because of his shiny red nose that lights up to show the way. Rudolph’s nose light is removable so that he can plug it in and charge it up ready for the Christmas present drop. Now it is the beginning of December and the nose has gone missing, presumed stolen. Santa suspects the other reindeer of foul play but which one?
'Who Stole Rudolph's Nose? is an original mystery written for upper primary/ middle school students in time for the Christmas season. Mystery includes all the suspects, clues and answers for a fun classroom lesson.
This thinking challenge is one of the series of secret code mysteries for students to solve either individually or as a group challenge. Great for supporting team building skills. The clues are based on mathematical codes and ciphers and as each clue is solved it eliminates a number of suspects until there is just one possibility left. All the answers are included.
In my own teaching practice, I print out the mystery and make booklets for the students to work on at the beginning of the week and I do not debrief with answers until three or four days later. Some students love to work on their own while others work together. This strategy allows for the students to work on the puzzles at their own rate and to think about possible strategies. It also encourages collaboration. Each mystery includes a range of problem difficulty.
No prep. Just print and solve.
