Mysteries are exciting for students. My kids love them.
’Who stole Santa's Washing.’ is a no-prep original mystery that is sure to keep your students engaged and focused while giving you breathing space during the busy Christmas countdown. The mystery includes all the suspects, clues and answers for a fun classroom lesson for upper primary/ middle school students.
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.
