The intention of this detective activity is to have students think about words and the letter combinations that make up words. The word work task cards can be tied into the CCSS as well. Watch as your students become detectives to try to figure out the word!

Included in Resource:

  • Word Detective Teacher Tips (1-page)
  • Word Detective Challenge Cards (26-pages; 50 cards)
  • Word Detective Challenge Hint Cards (26-pages; 50 cards)
  • Word Detective Recording Sheet (1-page)
  • Word Detective Answer Key (1-page)
  • Word Detective Certificates (1-page; 2 per page)

There are 50 “Challenge” cards included. The cards work best if they are printed off on a heavier paper and then laminated. The cards can also be bound together for a station or they can be stacked loosely also- whatever works best for you. Each card contains four pictures. Students are to look at the pictures and decide what they have in common. The letters to choose from are listed towards the bottom of each card. For most cards, not all 11 letters will be used. The number of letters in the word is also located at the very bottom of each card.
