Nothing like a good criminal investigation to liven up language arts! There are three different Whodunnits for each story and this one focuses on the first act.
Based off my popular CSI projects, I have created Whodunnits? The Whodunnits plan to focus on single content topics as opposed to units. Every day can't be a project day, so Whodunnits can be an engaging out of their seat activity to build important knowledge.
In a Whodunnit?, students will work in teams to answer 10 questions. After each answer they will receive a clue. Similar to the popular board game Clue, there will be a fictional "injury" the goal will be to determine the "criminal", the scene of the crime and the method. Scenes can be placed around the room and the students will have at it.
In this 10 page document you will be given an outline for how to implement the project, a student worksheet and 10 "Clues" to be printed and plastered to the wall.
An answer key has been added to the end of the file for your convenience.
