In the ClassroomReading teachers in the elementary and middle grades will appreciate the complicated story line at a lower reading level. Students will be motivated to read more of the stories.
Why not display the mystery on an interactive whiteboard (or projection screen) as an anticipatory set for a science class on forensics, reading lesson about "finding clues," or a mystery unit. Use the tools to highlight clue words and other ways that the mystery "leads" you to the solution. Challenge your class to create their own 'quick solve' mysteries individually or with a partner on a class wiki. If your teaching assignment allows you to team teach, coordinate your mysteries in reading class with a look at scientific method in science class, using these mysteries.
