Product Description
Boring, lifeless research reports no more! Students will love inquiry research because they have freedom of topic choice (within the structure of the assignment), and you will love it as a teacher because it eliminates the repetitious feeling like you are reading the same report over and over.

Enter The Real Life Mystery. A world famous pilot and her plane disappear with no trace of wreckage. A man hijacks an airplane, parachutes out, and is never seen again. A necklace once stolen from an Hindu temple seems to bring bad luck to anyone who owns it. Our world is filled with mysteries. These cases that have never been 100% solved are filled with intriguing facts. Your students' task is to find and research a real life mystery and then write a five paragraph research report.

Included:
-Teacher's notes and recommended timeline (15 days)
-Assignment overview handout with topic choices (to start students thinking)
-Researching and formatting handouts
-Peer revising checklist
-"Start Your Sentences in Different Ways" handout
-Editing checklist
-Grading sheet
