This is a 1-2 week simulation depending how long you each science science per session. There is absolutely no planning just print and copy; and minimal preparation (just a few materials). I use this mystery unit as an introduction to science process skills at the beginning of the school year, as a review unit on nature of science or just as a fun way to teach team building skills for my students. The students are able to learn and practice all the science process skills, writing skills, and reading comprehension skills like inferencing and math measurement skills.
THIS PRODUCT INCLUDES…
Start-up mystery story and two options: 1) Use as a regular simulation with the short mystery; or 2) Use the materials in the unit to create your own live simulation including friend, colleagues, students and/or school administration. This unit includes: a Teacher Edition with directions on how to carry out both simulation options; materials to set up the crime scene; labels for evidence bags; station directions with optional QR codes; and a Student Edition with handouts. It’s a great way to start the year or as a fun end-of-year activity!
