Class Cluedo Maths

This converts the classic game Cluedo into three maths lessons. The aim for the children is to find out the location, weapon and the murderer by solving clues the murderer has left. I’ve always taught it as the children are in teams of 3 but it could be bigger or smaller teams. This particular one is designed for a Year 6 class. However, it can be adapted to any age range, including secondary school, as everything within it is editable. The clues are meant to be multiple step maths questions. It includes: The Cluedo Powerpoint The clues template on publisher A set of Cluedo cards on publisher A nice touch may be to get some deerstalker hats so the children can answer as the detective.
