The 3rd graders have been reading and learning about mysteries. Class 3-308 is trying to solve some mysteries going on in our own room. Can you help us solve them?
The Case: A Measurement poster appears in the classroom.
When we came in the day after Election Day, there was a measurement poster on the wall by the door. It was not in the Math Center. We don’t know who put it there.

The Suspects: Ms. Fera- She is a Math teacher and comes into our room sometimes. She keeps her supplies in our closet.
Ms. Cheikhali- She comes in our room on Fridays to teach us Math.
Ms. Irwin-She knows a lot about math and she is in the library next to our classroom.
Clues: The poster has to do with measurement. The note on the poster says “When can I have my poster back? I may need it. ”
Investigation notes. We asked Ms. Fera and she said it looks familiar. Ms. Cheikhali said she didn’t see anyone with a poster. We asked her to write the words “back and need” because those words were part of the message on the poster.
The handwriting matched so we think it was Ms. Cheikhali. We asked Ms. Cheikhali and she said it was her poster. Mystery solved.

Investigation:We found clues in Ms. Meade’s and Mr. Bracco’s room. We asked Mr. Stegman if he saw anyone go in our room. He thought for awhile and then said no. We also asked Ms. Illardi, Mr. Tantillo and Mr. Bracco. Mr. T tried on the glove but it was too tight. We took Mr. Bracco’s fingerprint but it did not match.
