Christina, who has a knack for stumbling upon (and solving) real-life mysteries, heads to Savannah, GA, where she and her Girl Scout friends are eager to join in the festivities for the National Camporee celebrating the Girl Scouts' 100th Anniversary. Although they are staying with Mimi, Christina's mystery-writing grandmother, Christina reassures the girls that on this trip, there will be no funny business and no mysteries.

But as they begin exploring the historic city, they discover that someone is leaving creepy clues that lead them to River Street, a spooky cemetery, on a ghost tour, and even to Juliette Gordon Low's home. Soon, they find themselves in the middle of a real mystery that is going to need all the Scouting skills they have, as well as their friendship, to work out! With just a few days until the Camporee begins, the girls put their skills into action to solve a mystery filled with giggles, goose bumps and "s'more!"

This book also includes lots of EXTRA (Girl Scout!) STUFF to do:
´ Create a mystery-writing patch!
´ Read about Juliette Gordon Low and other famous scouts in history!
´ Learn the lingo with a glossary of Girl Scout terms!

Seriously, what's more fun than camping out?! Sleeping under the stars? Roasting hot dogs over an open fire? Biting into ooey-gooey s'mores? Telling ghost stories in the moonlight? Waking up to a magnificent sunrise coming over the horizon?

Exploring Montana through Project-Based Leaning includes 50 well-thought-out projects designed for grades 3-5. In assigning your students projects that dig into MontanaÕs geography, history, government, economy, current events, and famous people, you will deepen their appreciation and understanding of Montana while simultaneously improving their analytical skills and ability to recognize patterns and big-picture themes.

Project-based learning today is much different than the craft-heavy classroom activities popular in the past. Inquiry, planning, research, collaboration, and analysis are key components of project-based learning activities today. However, that doesnÕt mean creativity, individual expression, and fun are out. They definitely arenÕt!

Each project is designed to help students gain important knowledge and skills that are derived from standards and key concepts at the heart of academic subject areas. Students are asked to analyze and solve problems, to gather and interpret data, to develop and evaluate solutions, to support their answers with evidence, to think critically in a sustained way, and to use their newfound knowledge to formulate new questions worthy of exploring.

While some projects are more complex and take longer than others, they all are set up in the same structure. Each begins with the central project-driving questions, proceeds through research and supportive questions, has the student choose a presentation option, and ends with a broader-view inquiry. Rubrics for reflection and assessments are included, too. This consistent framework will make it easier for you assign projects and for your students to follow along and consistently meet expectations.

Encourage your students to take charge of their projects as much as possible. As a teacher, you can act as a facilitator and guide. The projects are structured such that students can often work through the process on their own or through cooperation with their classmates.
