Wow! Super thorough and fun activity! I created a scavenger hunt around the school with one parent volunteer guiding each team. It was a hit!” 

“My students really put their heads together to work in investigative teams on this case! It was a fun way to start our school year and encourage students to start building relationships and connections within class as well. All the parts are clear and useful, and challenge students to use those critical thinking skills.”
