What other teachers like you have said about these mysteries…

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Catherine W said, I had purchased this to fill in in March but we ended up with so many weather days I set it aside. In the last week of school, we had time to try it. The students really enjoyed the different approaches and figuring out all the bits of each puzzle. THANK you!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Kris’s Classroom said, My students, LOVED this assignment!! They were engaged the entire time!! Thank you for making a fun, creative, and rigorous activity for the students!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ JoAnn W said, I love this resource! I used this with my 8th graders on a few wonky school days around the testing season. The puzzles were challenging but manageable, and my students really enjoyed narrowing down the list of suspects over time.
