    Congratulations on solving the Chocolate Caper Mystery!  You are now officially a detective extraordinaire!  To celebrate your success, choose an escape room for a fun, yet challenging activity. Use the link below and choose "room escape" from the top of the page and pick your room. How long will it take you to escape?  There are videos that show you what to do, but that ruins all the brain work!! Try to do it independently!  To receive credit for this assignment, let me know which one you tried and how you did.

    Chocolate Caper: Pg. 41 Second Floor- Use the clues provided to determine where each office is located in the chocolate factory.

    Chocolate Caper: Pg. 42 Notes from Detective Abel- This is the final puzzle!!! When you solve it, you will know who committed the crime! You might need to go back in the story to use information that was uncovered earlier to help you figure it out, but you will have all the information you need. Don't give it away! You will get bonus points if you tell me who did it when you turn in your work! P.S. If you aren't sure what a typewriter is, you may google it.

    There is no group google meet this week.  We will resume next week as usual.

    This week is "catch up" week.  Please use this time to get caught up with any assignments that you have not finished.  All assignments are still posted.  If you are finished with your assignments to date--you can teach your family how to play Bus Stop.  I have included the directions and the Bus Stop sheet to write on.  Use this game to practice your brainstorming skills and adapt it to fit your family's interests!  Have fun! If you turn in missing work, that will count as this week's assignment or you can message me to tell me that you played Bus Stop.

    It's time to get back to the Chocolate Caper!  If you brought your binders home, you can complete the logic puzzles on pgs. 31 and 32.  You will find out what each suspect's second alibi was and which witness saw them to prove they were there.  If you don't have your books you can use the documents below to work on.  Remember to use X for yes and O for no.  If you are working in your book, it might be easiest to transfer your answers onto the documents so you can turn them in, otherwise you can send me a picture of your completed puzzles.
