Budding Detective

  • Grade 7

  • Writing


In this mission, students explore the elements of a detective story. At the end, students write the resolution of a detective story based on a few clues provided, from the point of view of a detective who understands everything about a crime committed at school. Students use relational markers and textual organizers to provide a logical sequence to the story of the crime committed.
