Student Writer Instructions:
In Grandpa’s Teeth, Grandpa has his teeth stolen by a unexpected thief. For this writing exercise students will create their own mystery scene, choosing a character, an object, and a suspect. A mysterious plot should unfold as students use idea development to write their scene.
To begin this writing activity, you will press the first button below and decide who will be the person in your scene to be robbed.
Pressing the second button will give you an object that your character has had stolen from them. Remember these are everyday objects, which are very important to the victim. You should describe the missing items with great details.
Finally, with the third button, select a suspect who might have stolen the item.
With all three elements, can you creatively write your own wacky mystery scene without revealing the criminal until the very end? Can you use interesting details and give clues along the way? Make your reader have to guess all the way until the end to figure out who the suspect is.
