It’s a Mystery!

Students, today we will be reading another in our mystery series. Actually, both sixth and eighth grade alike should enjoy this tale. It comes from a local writer named Carl Hiaasen, and it even features a movie at the end if we are really good about our reading assignments! So, let’s get things started with some warmups:

  1. What is a mystery? What makes a good mystery in your opinion?
  2. Think about something mysterious that happened in your own life.
  3. In your composition book, write about the experience (one paragraph). Remember, it doesn’t have to be spooky or scary to be a mystery. Just something you needed to figure out.
  4. Peer editing of your paragraph (we will refer to the peer-editing symbols for this).
  5. Peer-editing symbols are here https://paperfreeclass.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/editor-marks.gif
