Mystery writers coordinate story elements to develop surprise endings with hidden illustrations.
Organized in teams of two, invite students to write an original mystery story with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils on lined paper.
Once the story has been written, edited, and finalized, ask teams to use Crayola Scissors to cut a door or window (a closable flap) in the center of a piece of construction paper. In the margin around the flap, students use colored pencils to illustrate the mystery story.
Open the flap. Use Crayola School Glue to attach white paper behind the construction paper. Dry overnight.
Students draw the solution to their mystery on the paper behind the flap. Close it. Staple the flip-flap illustration to the front of the mystery story.
Classmates read the story, look at the cover illustrations, and try to figure out how the mystery is resolved before they peek behind the flap.
