Kids love mysteries and this lesson plan from ReadWriteThink gives you the step by step on how to write a great mystery story. The plan includes several printouts that help students write their own mysteries with outline templates. One defines the elements of mystery, another is a graphic organizer, and a third is a story template that guides students through the writing. The peer editing sheet gives the specifics to look for in the partner’s mystery, and the mystery writing rubric helps both student and teacher assess the strength of the writing. You can catch the whole Mystery theme including story prompts on this website.
