Mysterious Year at Home School Connection
Atlantic HSAP students are enjoying mysteries this year. In addition to reading some great mysteries, this fall students have written “Hometown Mysteries” based on actual places in our community. The finished stories take place at the library, parks, an old school, the theatre, and even on the football field. Some of our stories are posted on our web page. You can find a link to class web sites at www.atlantic.k12.ia.us Click on Atlantic Home School Connection.
We have also been busy solving The Great Chocolate Caper, a mystery that teaches logic, by Mary Ann Carr and The Eleventh Hour, by Graeme Base. With both stories, we have had fun cracking codes and using matrix puzzles to sort out clues!
