Summer Camp Math Mystery Activity - 4th Grade Math Edition: The Case of the Missing Campers!

Easy prep, fun to solve! Lots of math review and deductive reasoning involved!

The mystery worksheets are printable and digital with Google Slides.

Distance Learning: You will find the Google Slides worksheet option link provided within the Teacher Instructions section of the PDF activity file.

Ideal for a fun summer spiral math review session!

Suggestion: Pace the clues one by one to keep the class at the same point. If using the clues in a different order, keep the suspect list away from students until all five clues are completed and discovered.

VIDEOS

- Video hook provided to set the stage to engage (check it out here).

Preparation

- Print the student pages, staple or place in a folder, and your students are set to go.

- Have the video hook ready for viewing at the start of the lesson on an IWB, iPad or computer monitor screen.

- Digital: Make a copy for each student when assigning via Google Classroom. They will need to be in 'edit mode' to enter their answers into the boxes.

Math Skills Required to Unlock Clues

There are five clues to crack to solve the mystery:

- Clue 1: Addition and Subtraction with large numbers
- Clue 2: Long Multiplication
- Clue 3: Adding and Subtracting Fractions (with LIKE denominators only, some reducing/simplifying required)
- Clue 4: Long Division, with some remainders. (Dividing two-digit and three-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers)
- Clue 5: Convert decimals to fractions

Students must use critical thinking skills to figure out what the clue is telling them to eliminate from the list of possibilities. This is a great opportunity for a class/group discussion if there is ever a dispute in the deductive reasoning process.

Also included:

- Printable awards
- Answer key
- Editable list of places

Multiple Uses

- Suitable for independent, pairs, or group work.

- Use as part of your math centers, add to your sub tubs, make it part of your early finisher tasks, give for homework, or make it part of your classroom practice/review sessions.

I recommend pacing this activity by giving students one clue at a time. Once the whole class has completed a clue, then move on to the next clue either within the same lesson or the next math session. New math content presented? Make a lesson out of it by modeling the math before diving into the clue. I like to say, "we must learn something new before attempting the next clue."

How long will this activity take?

Time to complete will vary anywhere between 30mins - 2 hours or more! It mainly depends on how familiar your students are with the math mystery format, as well as how difficult they find math skills covered in the particular mystery. Please check the math skills outlined in the clues above to help determine suitability for your class.
