Friday:

Mrs. Cooksey’s favorite genre is mystery.  Using Destiny from your iPad (it should be in your library folder) read a Milo and Jazz mystery or another mystery book of your choice.  Make sure you go to the Perez Destiny Site and then login using your id number as both the username and password. Do a keyword search for “Milo & Jazz” or just search for mystery.  As you are reading, see if you can find the clues to figure out who is guilty. (For help using Destiny, see the instructional videos below.)


If you have the game Clue at home.  Play the game and solve the mystery. Or play a game of Where in the World is Carmen San Diego.
