Activity 1

 A Murder Mystery


 Mr Kelley has been murdered. 

Your job is to find out 

1. who was the murderer?
2. the weapon?
3. the time of the murder?
4. the place of the murder?
5. the motive?


Look at the following clues. It isn't as easy as you may think so you will have to look at the clues a few times and make notes, timelines etc.

To start with we will only tell you when ALL of it is correct. If you struggle then we will give more clues.

Next is a logic problem. Your job is to find the names and ages of the people from the clues.

Finally this is a famous puzzle. 

Try your very best. 

We will discuss any strategies used later.
