Every Great Mystery Begins With A Spark
Parent/Guardian Phone Number
THE MYSTERY (pick one or both!) There is something in your setting that is MISSING. What is it? There is something WEIRD in your setting that shouldn’t be there. What is it?
What is the SETTING for your story (where does the story take place)? Choose somewhere with lots of people around. A mystery needs lots of characters who might have seen something weird...or done something weird.
Who is your DETECTIVE? This is the character who's going to try to solve the mystery. Some detectives are professionals (solving mysteries is their job), and some are just regular people who get interested in solving a mystery. Like all characters, a detective can be a person, an animal or something imaginary.
What is one DETAIL about your detective that is funny and/or surprising?
Who is the CULPRIT? This is who caused the mystery in the first place either by taking something or making something disappear from the setting, or putting something weird there that didn't belong.
WHY did the culprit do it?
What is one DETAIL about the culprit that is funny and/or surprising?
