I have teamed up with Megan Mitchell of First Grade Roars to bring you this exciting St. Patrick’s Day Math and Reading Mystery Challenge.
You will begin this activity with a short video that will challenge your students to solve the case of the missing marshmallow bunnies. They will have to find out who took them, when they took them, and where they put them. To solve the case, students will work to complete 9 different task cards. Once they complete a task card, they will receive a clue. After they have all 9 clues, they will be able to solve the mystery. As a fun culmination, there are award certificates.
