Murder Mystery

This worksheet is loosely based on Agatha Cristie's "The Mystery of Hunter's Lodge". The aim of the discussion is to find out who the murderer is. There are six suspects and three detectives, though some characters are optional depending on the size of your class. The basic characters are the two murderers and one of the detectives. You have to distribute the cards and let your Ss get acquainted with them. Then each of them presents the information he/she knows, the detective(s) ask questions. Sometimes you have to help by emphasizing certain facts. Usually, one of the brightest ss manages to solve the mystery.
