Elements of Mystery
Find, underline, & label:
Crime/Event that can't be explained, Clues, Suspect, Victim, Witness, Red Herring
We're going to start writing our own mysteries! We're only going to write 2 paragraphs of a mystery.
1st paragraph: Introduce scene. Where does it take place? What time period? Time of day?
the scene. Maybe introduce a character!
2nd paragraph: Introduce a character. Describe them. May be a detective, victim, a criminal-- who knows!
Finish sharing descriptions :)
Have you ever read a mystery story before? What was it?What do you think makes a story a mystery, versus something like a love story or a scary story?
Moments that spill over with emotion; moments you feel you could write a lot about. These are often found in lists of things you miss, love, etc. A way to stop writer's block!
Alliteration, metaphor, simile, dialogue, paragraph usage.
