Wally’s Detective Books

Wally’s Big Detective Book for Solving Problems at School

Wally's Big Detective BookThis large book includes scenarios from book one of the small Wally Detective books, with pictures that are big enough for a larger group setting. The teacher may read the problem situation and then ask the students to brainstorm possible solutions as a group. Two possible solutions are found on the back page of each problem situation so the class can compare their answers to the Wally’s solutions. These solutions can be acted out live or with puppets.
