This week I was delighted to go into my daughter’s grade four class and help out with mystery writing as part of their language arts program. We started off by playing an engaging game from the Gumshoe Detective Agency then went on to discuss the elements of mystery writing (it doesn’t have to be a crime) and planting clues so that the mystery can be solved.  Fun as it was, it occurs to me that mysteries could hold an exciting place in the classroom but better at Grade Seven and logic or social as well as writing. I would love to work with a teacher developing a cirriculum unit or two.
