Matt must solve a mystery when everyone but the unpopular David is away on holidays.
Grades 2 to 5
Friends, prejudice, intergenerational, mystery
Think of someone you’d like to make a treasure hunt for, and what kind of treasure they would like to find. (A book maybe, or maybe a game to play, something to eat, or something else you could make for them.) Pick six good hiding places for the treasure, and hide it in the best one. Write clues like those Matt and David found on the way to finding their treasure, to lead your treasure-hunter from place to place, ending of course with the one where the treasure is hidden. Don’t forget the postcard clue, to get the whole treasure hunt started.
