Mini-mysteries are not only fun brain teasers, but also practice listening and inferential skills. They are high interest bell ringers, exit tickets, time-fillers, and best of all, carrots for the end of the day. Alternatively, early finishing or talented students could read the mysteries on their own. The most obvious methods of using these tales are to read them out loud or to show them on your screen. The students then guess the solutions. If you want them to work a bit harder, they could record and explain their guesses on the included worksheet.
These mysteries are drawn from three Brilliantly Lit resources.
