Students take the role of detective in this exciting murder mystery activity. These “detectives” were tasked to investigate a strange murder and question the suspects involved. Once learning the meanings of the words “Motive”, “Alibi”, and “Clue”, they set off to gather this information from the suspects and generate a hypothesis of what happened and why. In the attached picture, M1Ep2 student/detective MJ is shown questioning fellow student/suspect, Richard. MJ was the only student in his class to correctly identify the murderer! Students learned the art of combining critical thinking skills and deductive reasoning to analyze clues and solve the mystery.
