Mystery Mix is a Motivator Map that activates the Imagination and presents a most surprising fact. You can make a diverse mix that has multiple science learning uses and is handy for integrating a little bit of artwork too. Posed as a mystery, participants can analyze a mix of rubble and try to identify where it came from....and draw the habitat. They can learn how in Nepal, ammonites (marine cephalopods with shells) are found along the bed of the Kali Gandaki River or that climbers who have been to the top of Mount Everest, brought back rocks in which the fossils of sea lilies were discovered. The Next Generation of Science Standards and National Standards of the Teachers of Mathematics are applied.
