This is a fun case by case book that kids will know most of the answers to the crimes. The fun one was Humpty Dumpty, of course, but the others were cute too. This would be good for older Elementary School kids visiting - Just share 2-3 cases with them and have them try to solve the crime.

Detective Book Mission- Mystery Genre Exploration I have my first formal observation with our new admins tomorrow so before I left on Friday, I prepped a book mission- an easy way to engage students and get them thinking critically. Instead of me telling my students what to do, their mission will tell them- which is magically way more exciting than me ;)
