about this item

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.
