Mystery Madness


At the beginning of the year, our first unit/nine weeks, we have a school wide mystery madness theme. All curriculum is integrated with our theme including specials and labs. I do a forensic science unit with my second graders that I love! I use the GEMS Mytery Festival unit (there are two mysteries with this book/kit, one for 2-3 and one for 4-5. Everything I needed came in the kit, but for some GEMS units I use, I just bought the book because I already had most of the supplies. The books run about $15, but you can pick up used copies very easily. GEMS is a great place to start if you are bored with your current science or math program. They work with my standards and the kids love the activities and investigations.
