Digestive System Text Marking Detective Mystery – Reading Passages

With their Digestive System Reading Passage in hand, students will move around the classroom answering questions, playing detective and finding clues to the case. This Text-Marking Detective Mystery has students using their reading passage multiple times searching for evidence to each of the 18 questions. Great addition to your Human Body Systems unit.


Topics include: Digestive System and the five stages of digestion


Students will work individually (or in pairs) and race to see who can solve the case first! A friendly competition always increases engagement. As students answer each question, they will need to underline or highlight where they found the answer in the reading passage.
