    “My students absolutely loved this activity! They were engaged & participating the whole class period. We used this whole group since we are hybrid right now, and even my kiddos at home were loving it. Students that never volunteer to read out loud were volunteering to read the clues. For the next story, a few of my students even suggested I assign them roles & they can act it out like a play! Thank you for taking the time to make this.”

    “My grade 8 ELA students struggle with inferencing and citing text evidence. If your students could use more practice, too, then THIS IS FOR YOU! What’s even better, the students don’t even know how hard they’re working–it is so much fun and my students literally BEG to get more clues. I was a bit worried that my students would think that they’re too “cool” for it, but the positive energy and team work prevented any students from thinking this.”

    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!

    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.”

    On April 10, 1912, the luxury steamship the RMS Titanic set sail from Southampton, England to New York City with 2,240 passengers.   The wealthiest of these passengers was John Jacob Astor IV. Mr. Astor was carrying precious jewels with him across the Atlantic to deliver to his wife. The jewels were said to be worth more than $10 million.  Many of the passengers knew of Mr. Astor and his jewels. On the night of April 15, 1912 the RMS Titanic collided with an ice berg causing major damage to the ship’s vessel. The ship was going down fast and there were only enough life boats for about half of the Titanic’s passengers. As Mr. Astor hustled to grab his belongings to run to a life boat, he realized that his precious jewels were missing from his personal safe. This 100 year old mystery has never been solved and your class has been assigned to crack the case.  Can you use the clues to solve this 100 year old mystery?

    In September of 1620, the Mayflower sailed from England to the new land across the Atlantic Ocean. After two long months at sea, the ship landed at Cape Cod.  Many of the colonists
    starved or could not bare the cold and harsh weather. Although the colonists worked hard to get through the winter, another tragedy struck.  Still to this day, one mystery remains from that fateful winter. A fire erupted and burned down seven of the colony homes. This fire caused extreme hardship on the pilgrims and nobody ever discovered the truth behind the cause of the fire. In recent discoveries, a journal of one of the colonists have been found. This journal may hold the secret to the long forgotten mystery of the Plymouth fires.  Can you solve the mystery and find the answer to this centuries old mystery?
