Invite your students to become sleuths and get to know new classmates. Who can crack the codes? Solve mysteries about your friends!
Ask students how well they think they know their classmates. Are they men of mystery and women of intrigue? What are their hobbies and who are their favorite people? Everyone in the class can be a sleuth! Here’s one way to begin.
Challenge each student to make an ID card. On an index card, students create a Secret Agent identity card using Crayola® Gel Markers and Rainbow Twistables. First, students should come up with an alias, or code name. Suggest they get creative by combining a pet’s name with a grandmother’s name, spelling your name backwards, or choosing a nickname.
Demonstrate to students how to encrypt other vital information about themselves with symbols (you might pick a plane if you like to fly). Design a code for your birthday and street address. Scramble letters or use nonsense symbols. Write your real name on the back. To wear your badge, cut a small X at the top of the card with Crayola Scissors. Slip a button through the X.
Students prepare a Secret Agent Notebook. Decorate a small paper for the front of a Mead Mini Notebook. Remind students to make sure their Secret Agent code name is on it. Glue it on with a Crayola Glue Stick.
Now it’s time to figure out who’s who. As students ask each other questions, record their answers in your Secret Agent notebook with Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils. Try to crack the codes on each other’s ID cards! Who will be the last to reveal their true identity?
Affirm self-image and visualize success by creating original artwork showing the achievement of personal goals.
