Students must use their math skills to unlock clues. Then, use their powers of deduction to narrow down the suspects to find who is the Halloween Heist thief!

>>NEW<< - Optional ENDING Video Clip: I've listened to feedback about the want for an ending video. For the first time with a paper math mystery, I'm starting to include a short video that you can use at the end of the mystery to wrap up the activity.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preparation

- Print the student pages, staple or place in a folder, and your students are set to go.

- Have the video hook ready for viewing at the start of the lesson on an IWB, iPad or computer monitor screen.

Math Skills Required to Unlock Clues

There are five clues to crack to solve the mystery:

Clue 1: Multiplying Numbers Ending in Zeroes

Clue 2: Add & Subtract Fractions (some with like denominators and some with unlike denominators)

Clue 3: Multiply triple-digit numbers by single-digit numbers

Clue 4: Add & Subtract Decimals

Clue 5: Rounding Decimals to the nearest whole or tenth

Students must use critical thinking skills to figure out what the clue is telling them to eliminate from the list of possibilities.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Multiple Uses

- Suitable for independent, pairs, or group work.

- Use as part of your math centers, add to your sub tubs, make it part of your early finisher tasks, give for homework, or make it part of your classroom practice/review sessions.

I recommend pacing this activity by giving students one clue at a time. Once the whole class has completed a clue, then move on to the next clue either within the same lesson or the next math session. New math content presented? Make a lesson out of it by modeling the math before diving into the clue. I like to say, "we must learn something new before attempting the next clue."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How long will this activity take?

Time to complete will vary anywhere between 30mins - 2 hours or more! It mainly depends on how familiar your students are with the math mystery format, as well as how difficult they find math skills covered in the particular mystery. Please check the math skills outlined in the clues above to help determine suitability for your class.
