Definition: The characters are trying to solve a puzzle that often involves a
crime. The writer gives clues to the reader. The author may also give false clues.
(I found this great kid friendly definition HERE. You can also print out flashcards that contain 24 different genres along with their definitions. Such a great resource).
The 4th grade class I am teaching right now has been assigned to do a "Mystery Book Report" for the month of September.
I had a lot of fun going through my own personal library as well as researching the best age appropriate mystery books to put together my "Fabulous Mystery Books List".
I can't wait to share with you the fun "Mystery Book Report" I came up with for my students. I hope the kids are as excited to do the book report as I was to create it! I will be sharing the book report with you soon.
Do you have anymore great mystery books that you think would be wonderful to add to this list? I would love to hear them.
