Who Took Fluffy?™ is a Who-Done-It mystery for grades 3-6 that introduces students to science concepts through a Problem Based Learning (PBL) approach. The problem is simple: determine Who Took Fluffy?™ (Fluffy is a rabbit who is the class mascot in Ms. Donroe’s classroom.) To achieve that determination, students learn concepts that help form the basis for all science learning such as pattern recognition, cause and effect and evidence-based conclusions. This kit includes everything the teacher and students need to conduct six Lessons and five Lab Activities:
  • Lesson 1: The Story
  • Lesson and Lab 2: Blood Typing
  • Lesson and Lab 3: Hair Analysis
  • Lesson and Lab 4: Fingerprint Analysis
  • Lesson and Lab 5: Fiber Analysis
  • Lesson and Lab 6: Footprint Analysis

Students can work individually or in groups.

The Teacher and Student Booklets included provide lessons and step-by-step procedures for conducting the labs. These booklets also present the story and the characters involved in a fun, graphically rich style.

The booklets also include the floor plan map of the classroom scene, an important tool they will use to solve the case. Here students map where evidence was found and, after it has been analyzed in the lab, determine to whom the evidence belongs.

Who Took Fluffy?™ WT-5030-KIT-B includes more than enough materials for a class of 30 students.  For a class of 15 students, please consider purchasing WT-5015-KIT-B.

Who Took Fluffy?™ WT-5030-KIT-B includes a sheet of 30 Badges of Completion stickers you can hand out to your students when they have completed the activity.  Students get a beautiful Case File pocket folder to manage the printed materials of their case as they proceed through the activity.

The kit is shipped in a sturdy, clear plastic tote for safe storage and easy access. Each of the lab activities are packed in their own heavy-duty reclosable poly storage bag.
