Crime and Puzzlement: Snow Cover

It has been a busy week already, but I’m forcing a few minutes of time this morning to publish this lesson plan on the Crime and Puzzlement case “Snow Cover.” Here is a Cultural Literacy worksheet on Apollo with which I open this lesson. The center of this lesson is, of course, this PDF of the illustration and questions that drive the case. Finally, here is the typescript of the answer key that solves the case.

Cultural Literacy: Basque Region

Here is a Cultural Literacy worksheet on the Basque Region if you have any use for it. I’ve tagged it as a Hispanic History document. However, I must concede that the reading that drives this worksheet is at the outer limits, so to speak, of Hispanic History….
