What do Sherlock Holmes and food have in common? They both create mysteries! Let me explain...Two years ago the boys and I did a mystery unit. We read The Westing Game, did some fun activities, and finished off with a mystery meal. It was such a hit that I have decided that we are going to do a shortened mystery unit. Our favorite activities were the read aloud and the mystery meal. I have been trying to come up with a list of books/stories we could read that are mysteries and/or involve crimes. This is what I am looking at as far as read alouds go.
The Ransom of Red Chief
The Complete Father Brown Stories
and if there is time...
The Case of the Missing Marquess: An Enola Holmes Mystery
I am working on a new mystery meal. To see what a mystery meal consists of and how we did ours, click here. I would love to hear if you have any ideas!
