In this companion to her best-selling books One-Hour Mysteries and More One-Hour Mysteries, Carr presents five exciting new mysteries for student detectives to tackle. Students will sharpen their sleuthing skills after completing the course designed for great detectives at the Private Eye School, before moving on to tackle mysteries such as “The Vandal Strikes” and “The Great Electric Train Robbery.”

Along the way, students will learn to analyze bloodstains and lip prints, while decoding messages and solving challenging puzzles. Each of these mysteries requires students to think outside of the box, organize data, take notes, make inferences, and use deductive reasoning skills. The mysteries include a teacher’s guide and attractive reproducible pages for students to use in their investigations.

The Private Eye School also provides directions for creating a classroom learning center, in which students write their own mysteries, create logic puzzles, and sketch crime scenes.

We love logic mysteries!
My homeschooled children love logic matrix puzzles AND mysteries.  They literally devour just about any Prufrock Press logic book, and The Private-Eye School: More One-Hour Mysteries for the Classroom is no exception.

In six exciting scenarios, my children practiced keen observation skills, completed logic matrix puzzles to find clues, interpreted data, and made inferences and deductions to solve the mysteries.

I appreciated how everything I needed was in the book and could be easily copied.  I also appreciated that my children were able to work independently or together as I saw fit.  And, as with all other Prufrock Press logic/mystery books we've used, I loved how well-organized the book is with pages that were attractive to my children.

The Private-Eye School was a winner in our homeschool!
