Mysteries for Kids

The mini-mysteries in the resource progressively get harder. The star scale on the ‘Choose Your Mystery’ slide helps distinguish the difficulty level of each mystery. 🔍

It’s a perfect interactive whiteboard activity for the whole class, promoting collaboration, communication, and problem-solving.

Interactive Features

The PowerPoint is best viewed in ‘Slide Show’ mode. This allows for interactive functions to work correctly. Simply ‘View Show’ from the beginning and use the buttons to navigate through to your choice of mystery.

When your students think they know whodunnit, tap the ‘Solve’ button and then choose the culprit to determine if they are correct.
