Mystery Writing


Students will be excited to write with this adorable STEP-BY-STEP MYSTERY WRITING activity. Although I loved doing this unit around Halloween, it can be done any time during the year. Students love being detectives and using the detective journal!

PRINT OFF THE BADGES AND GET READY TO TAKE NOTES IN A DETECTIVE JOURNAL! You could even buy those little magnifying glasses so they can pretend they are detectives!
