MS Summer Reading 2020: Mystery

Week 6: Mystery

Mystery: Red herring, anyone? This element of the mystery genre is #9 on the list of "The 10 Elements of a Mystery Story". It's so satisfying to discover a sleuth (#4 on the list) who you like, and even better if that sleuth is featured in a series of books. Agatha Christie's mysteries are often a gateway into this genre because of the beloved dectective, Hercule Poirot. I hope you can find a mystery series to keep you going throughout the summer!


Activity 1: Track those clues! Just like a detective, create a case file complete with theories you may have and clues to support your theory.

Activity 2: Create a mystery trail/scavenger hunt for a family member or friend to solve.
