Ok, it’s Wednesday morning on the final week of the 2018-2019 school year. Everytime I write something like that, I feel like a convict marking time.
Here, on this cool late spring morning, is a complete lesson plan on the Crime and Puzzlement case “Tragedy in the Bathroom.” I open this lesson with this Cultural Literacy worksheet on the American idiom “Play Possum.” For the lesson itself, you’ll need this PDF scan of the illustration and questions from Crime and Puzzlement Volume 1. Finally, here is the answer key to Tragedy in the Bathroom, which I’ve rendered in typescript in the event that you need to adjust it for English language learners or struggling readers.
