Whodunnit? That is the question consuming fourth and fifth graders at West Point Elementary School this month. The students are working on a month-long mystery project in the media center where they must crack codes, learn about fingerprints, make observations and even try their hand with invisible ink. Additionally, they are learning all about the mystery genre and listening to mysteries in different formats such as stories, podcasts and videos. During the month, students can check out mystery books from special bags. If they read a book and do a book report on it they earn a pass to a special "Mystery Reward" party. What is they mystery party all about? Many of our super sleuths have a hunch but none have found enough evidence to make a solid case.
