Crime Scene Kicks off Mystery Unit at Kensington Elementary
5th grade AIG reading students at Kensington Elementary experienced a surprise this week when they entered the classroom to find a staged “crime scene”.
As part of a mystery unit kick-off, students spent several days examining clues and conducting hands-on, scientific investigations, as they gathered evidence to support their theories on the “Who Dun It?” scenario.
Supporting opinions with evidence from the text is key to building strong inferencing skills and serves as a focal point for students throughout the school year.
