Gather your clues and dust for prints! Someone (…or something) has been causing trouble in the Town of Spooksville.
Halloween Whodunit is a seasonal math project that requires students to use math and logic to eliminate suspects and solve a crime. They’ll use their knowledge of addition, subtraction, multiplication, coordinate graphing, fractions, and line plots to review surveillance, analyze fingerprints, decode secret messages, map out locations, and determine if witnesses are being truthful or not.
Check it out here! This project is perfect for early finishers or for groups during your Halloween class party or math block. There is also a digital option that is 100% paperless.
Students will complete the seven steps of this resource to identify who is innocent and who is guilty of the crime.
