  • Copy and laminate the little people – students will wear these as suspects.

  • Give each group their first set of problems. Students will solve them then come to you for a decipher sheet.

  • Once they decipher the clue, they will share it with you, to receive their next problem set.

  • Then the steps repeat until they figure out who amongst them committed the crime.
