Project the mini-mystery on your board, or provide a hard copy to students. Instruct your class to read the statements made by each character, and don’t forget the ‘Cold Hard Facts’!

Your students have to use logic and reasoning to eliminate the ‘red herring’ characters and solve ‘who scared the black cat?’
