PDF | 1 page | Years: 3 - 4

A fun, logic-based activity where students read clues to solve the mystery.

This teaching resource can be used as an engaging warm-up activity or task for fast finishers.

Use it as a stimulus for the whole class or distribute to individual students.

Students read the statements made by the suspects and the Cold Hard Facts at the bottom of the page.

They use logic and reasoning to eliminate ‘red herring’ suspects and determine the events that led up to the cookie being stolen.
