Watch your students come alive as they work together to solve these interactive classroom mysteries! The Mystery Science series for grades 3–4 was designed to meet the growing need in elementary school classrooms for hands-on, inquiry-based activities. The series combines interdisciplinary learning with field-tested, standards-based activities that encourage students to explore their surroundings, make observations, ask questions, and communicate their ideas at every step. Students will love sorting through evidence and making educated guesses as they learn to think like real forensic scientists!
The Case of the Missing Bicycle introduces students to the basic principles of scientific inquiry. As students complete the activities, they will gain confidence in their ability to analyze and interpret competing information, and they will learn through hands-on experience how to transition from using lower order, concrete thinking skills to using higher order, critical thinking and cooperative problem-solving skills.
Each book includes detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to stage the mystery in your own classroom, as well as reproducible handouts and a rubric for assessment.
