The Case of the Missing Diamonds


Miss Rose had a feeling that something wasn’t quite right.  She had a collection of rare diamonds that many people would have loved to get their hands on.  Charlie, Miss Rose’s dog alerted her of a noise coming from the corridor after he heard a loud bang.  Miss Rose dismissed the noise and went to bed, but when she woke up the next morning her diamonds were gone!  Can you solve the mystery before it’s too late?

“My students loved this activity. They were engaged and worked in small groups to figure out the mystery. I had them do the activity right before Halloween, a day that they are usually very excitable. They were focused and worked until they solved the mystery.”

This was such a fun activity to use after our standardized testing was over for the year. My students got so excited to solve the mystery, and this was definitely a well-designed resource. It was great for my virtual learners to have something fun to do while they were still engaged.”

Are you ready to watch your student engagement skyrocket?!  Students will work together to solve the mystery AND practice a variety of academic skills including; inferencing, critical thinking, problem solving, reading comprehension, and much more!  The material is so fun and engaging, students won’t even know they are actually learning!

I highly suggest you TEST THE LINK on a student device to see whether or not they have access to the site. Go through the mystery and see how it would look to a student. If you do not have access to Google Sites, you may need to contact your district or school’s IT department for further assistance.
