Some Creative Writing Prompts: Image result for mystery images

 

1. You wake up to find a sticky or post-it note stuck to your forehead. This note has a clue that leads you to another clue somewhere in your house. Your family claim they know nothing about it but they decide they will help you solve the mystery. One clue leads to another. Where will it all end?

 

2. Someone has been stealing away the puppies from your town at night. You and a team of investigators (concerned people from the neighborhood and your friends) have decided to figure out the crime when the police couldn't. What do you do and how do you solve it?

 

Word-Work Activities:

 

1.    Using the letters in the word ‘investigate’, challenge yourself to see how many other words can you make? You could set a timer of 10 minutes. Is there someone at home that can take on this challenge with you? (All words need at least 2 letters).

 

2.    What does the word ‘investigate’ mean? Write a meaning or draw a picture to show the meaning of the word. Write 2 sentences using the word ‘investigate’. Reread your definition and sentences. Ask yourself “Do they make sense?” Read them to someone at home or a pet!
