Delving into facts and evidence, 4th Grade students at Riverdale Heights attempted to solve a long standing mystery: what happened to the colonists on Roanoke Island? These young investigators worked together to separate fact from fiction and then presented their cases to other 4th graders in the building.
Mrs. Woods presented the students with six scenarios of what could have happened to the colonists. The students researched those scenarios and then broke into groups based on what they believed the solution to the mystery to be. Of course, we’ll never really know – but students convincingly presented their ideas. Solid research, teamwork, and thinking are always a way to help solve any mystery.
