Crime Mysteries are fun; they encourage executive function when young detectives observe clues, sequence events, make deductions about motives, consider possible suspects and discuss their conclusions.
The A3 format fosters listening skills, collaboration and debate in teamwork.
The monochrome scenes promote visual perceptual skills whilst inference and hypothesis are enhanced when ‘detectives’ present their ideas.
There are no ‘right or wrong’ answers to the statements; they are designed to allow any reasonable conclusion so budding detectives can let their imaginations flourish!
Crime Mysteries come with teacher notes and are a great story starter.
