You will begin this activity with a short video that will challenge your students to solve the case of the missing pot of gold. They will have to find out who took it, when they took it, and where they put it. 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.
