Thank you for posting this! I am opting my child out of the standardized test, and she will be doing this unit, instead. :) It is fun, the perfect length and easy enough for her to follow on her own. Now she'll be reading and writing and learning instead of testing and testing and testing.

This was fantastic when I used it with a group of ESL/SPED students. It enabled us to go step by step and complete the mysteries. Some were quite good!

I used these handouts with my 7th grade class after reading a mystery novel. They worked GREAT for students preparing to write their own mysteries. Thank you!
