One-Hour Mysteries
Mary Ann Carr
The five mysteries in this book provide an opportunity to build thinking skills in a motivating context. The mysteries, which include robberies, blackmail, sabotage, and murder, are appropriate for children in grades 4–8, and each mystery includes complete instructions for program staff and reproducible pages that outline the mystery and supply clues until the culprit is found. Student detectives investigate suspects and their alibis and motives. In addition to using deductive reasoning skills, students take notes, organize data, and analyze evidence in a classroom forensic lab. (64 pages)
