Research Skills For All Ages
Super Sleuth Detective
Super Sleuth is a library skills game that can help teach research skills
to elementary grade students. Students are given a category for the week.
Each day of the week they are given a new clue to help them verify the
answer. When students have verified four to five of the given clues, they
place an answer ballot in a ballot box. Answers are posted every Monday.
Students will demonstrate efficient use of library media center research
tools by successfully verifying clues to Super Sleuth games.
Students are given a Super Sleuth category and Monday's clue. Students
look at the words in bold print to help guide them to begin their research.
Students must verify facts about the clue. Each day students are given
a new clue with new information to verify. Students must verify several
clues before they can place a ballot in the ballot box. Students must name
the sources they used to help them verify facts.
