Fifth grade students learned all about mystery novels as part of their summer reading projects. Over the summer, they read a selection from The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew, where they were introduced to topical "mystery" words from this type of genre. Students then responded to questions in writing to prepare them for the three-paragraph book report/summary. They then presented their book reports to their classmates, along with "mystery boxes" they created containing artifacts relating to the book as well as pictures on each side of the boxes.
