Looking for a fast, easy way to turn your students into advanced problem solvers?

Young students become members of the Detective Club by solving a series of short introductory puzzles. Primary students love working along with the young detectives in the book to solve six different mysteries. While solving the mysteries, students will gather information through decoding the message, sorting information, solving logic puzzles, and using inferential thinking. In order to reach conclusions, students will practice the following skills: organizing clues, combining and analyzing the information presented, using deductive reasoning, and using the process of elimination. Each of the six mysteries includes a teacher’s guide with complete instructions for the teacher and answers to the puzzles. All mysteries are presented on attractive reproducible worksheets that include entertaining dialogue and clues needed to solve the mystery. This is a motivating format for teaching thinking while working on reading comprehension.

Have your students solve even more mysteries with Mystery Disease, Mystery Science, Crime Scene Detective, and The Great Chocolate Caper.

Fabulous puzzle book
My 2nd grader plowed through 3 of the mysteries (encompassing roughly 10 logic puzzles) in one day. I had to drag him away. I'm ordering the second book before he finishes this one. This book includes really engaging mysteries that my son gets to crack using the clues. Highly recommended.

Motivating Mysteries!
As a homeschool mom of children who love logic puzzlers, I'm always on the lookout for new books to add to our collection. This book has been so much fun! My son loves that each puzzle is part of a bigger mystery - and the topics are attention grabbers for this age level. Thumbs up!

Review: Parent Council - January 1, 2007
This teaching aid for second through fourth graders emphasizes deductive reasoning skills in a fun way. The reader can become a member of the Detective Club while boosting reading and logic skills. To sustain the challenges, the problems get progressively more difficult. An excellent teacher resource.
