What is a Mini-Mystery?

If you haven’t taken a look at our mini-mysteries before, you’re in for a treat! A mini-mystery is a logic puzzle that encourages deeper thinking using memory and problem-solving skills. What’s more, mini-mysteries help to increase visual-spatial reasoning and increase IQ. And the best part? They work brilliantly as warm-up or fast-finisher activities!

We’re super excited to add these beauties to our Christmas Resource Collection. With 3 levels of difficulty, these mini-mysteries will suit any classroom and can be completed independently or as a whole-class activity! Simply check the star rating at the top of each mini-mystery to see the degree of difficulty for the task. Then, instruct your students to read the clues and use logic to solve these puzzles.

Who Put Up Their Christmas Tree Too Early?

Cold Hard Fact: Putting up a Christmas tree before December 1st is too early!

Well… at least according to this mini-mystery. I know some people in the Teach Starter office who may disagree!

Read the cold hard facts in this Christmas logic puzzle before using mathematical skills to figure out the mystery.
