Instructions Each of the pieces of paper I am holding contain one clue that will help you solve a murder mystery. If you put all the facts together, you will be able to solve the mystery. You must find the murderer, the weapon, the time of the murder, the place of the murder, and the motive. Anytime you think you know the answers and the group agrees on the guess, you may tell me. I will only tell you whether all five answers are right or wrong. If part of your answers are incorrect, I will not tell you which answers are wrong.
Questions to answer • Who was the murderer? • What was the weapon used? • When was the time of the murder? • Where was the place of the murder? • What was the motive?

Problem Solving • How did you solve this problem? • What methods did your group use? • Did you have any one in your group that was the leader or anyone that took over? • Did you have people who did nothing? • What do you think you could have done better? • How does this relate to solving other problems you might have?
