Cluedunnit Kids

Mission investigate; ask questions, have fun and get creative

Cluedunnit Kids provides a fun, unique and creative learning opportunity for Year 6, and Year 5/6, student teams to investigate a fictional criminal offence with the goal of identifying the prime suspect and eliminate the other suspects. 

A brief of evidence provides clues and students can then ask up to six questions to get further evidence to help them identify the prime suspect and eliminate the others. 

Each team then creates and submits their findings in a creative way of their choosing. Creative submission types range from electronic/digital formats (video interviews, video songs, video song with a choreographed dance , animations, Powerpoint presentations and video re-enactment) or a written format (pop-up book, board game, booklet, comic, poster).

Cluedunnit Kids provides an opportunity for students to apply the core Humanities and Social Sciences skills and addresses WA Curriculum General Capabilities.

Teacher Comments

"As our first time entering the competition the students love the idea of solving a crime. The teamwork and problem-solving and analytical skills were tested and developed. Engagement and enthusiasm were high."
"It’s fun as well as challenging. It links well to the year 6 curriculum providing a reason to investigate our system of law and order."
"Critical and creative thinking skill development. Ability to work as a group. Fun and motivating."
