Are you trying to save paper in the classroom or at home? Is your school encouraging more use of technology and less traditional paper worksheets? Over the past year, I've been working on building digital mystery options to start a new line that will help teachers cater for their classrooms if technology resources are needed. These mystery games take me a while to make, so at the moment I don't have too many available. But, this week I'd like to share with you my latest digital mystery creation for the spooky season coming up, The Case of the Halloween Heist! I'll include a free trial so that you can see how it works. It might be a fun option to keep your students engaged and learning in the build up to Halloween.
Using Math Mysteries in the classroom is a fun way to mix things up when consolidating and/or reviewing math skills. However, for some classrooms, it can be a little bit challenging to keep excited students contained from sharing 'classified' information. To prevent clue or mystery solution 'spills' happening, I recommend setting up some Math Mystery expectations for your class. Read on to find out my suggestions for rules and a free poster download to use.
Adding some fun background music while completing a math or reading mystery can create a positive working atmosphere in the classroom. Your student detectives will feel more immersed in the mystery task and, hopefully, be more motivated to persevere through the more challenging questions and puzzles. Like a workout, the type of music you choose to go with the rhythm of the activity is important. So, in this blog post, I've rounded up some music track suggestions, from YouTube, for you to readily find and play when doing a mystery activity at home or in the classroom.
