Mini-Mystery – Who Killed the Class Plant? – Interactive PowerPoint

PowerPoint | 11 pages|Grades: 2 - Lower - 6

An intriguing mystery where students use their problem-solving skills to determine the culprit.

Display this interactive PowerPoint as a fun and engaging warm-up when returning from lunch or at the start of the day.

Students use logical reasoning to determine the full story and figure out who was responsible for the plant dying.

Brain breaks are a great way to re-engage students throughout the day.

View the presentation in ‘Slide Show’ mode to allow the interactive features to work correctly.

Based on my track record with indoor plants, it would not surprise me if I somehow killed the class plant.
