Westing Game

Clip to ScrapBook #3

I used the Westing Game in an advanced reading class in middle scool a few years ago. We started out by playing the game clue and then they had to create their own murder mysteries. We then read the book and as the other teacher described we each picked a character at the start of the story to to make our own. Throughout the story they had to really get to know their character. When we finished the story we had a celebration where we each dressed as our character and gave clues as to who we were (usually the dress gave it away, but they were very creative in their clues and the kids had fun guessing who each one was.) We did other activities, but they are not coming to me right now- if I think if them, I'll let you know. Oh, we also watched the movie- it was horrible, the kids hated it (and they really enjoyed the book)
