Sebastian Sharp & the Case of the Missing Manuscript
Greetings Gumshoes! Welcome to Misterioso Manor! Aunt Bernice has invited her niece and nephew to her at her musical mystery mansion, Misterioso Manor, to help solve this case but they need your students’ help! Join Sebastian, Elise, Aunt Bernice and her staff to track down one of history’s most famous composers using your knowledge of music to guide you through the clues. Are you up for the challenge?
It’s elementary, my dear Watson! Each student gets a character piece to stick on the game board. For each day students practice, they will earn one space in Misterioso Manor, a giant gameboard hung in the studio. They will move and re-stick their piece to the game board on their new location.
Visiting each room only once, students must visit all 12 rooms in the mansion plus the Piano Pool, Staccato Stable and G Clef Garden to earn all 15 available clue cards one at a time. Each clue card tells the next part of the story and asks students to answer music and theory questions. The answers to these musical questions will not only help them learn more about music but will give them their next clue to find out WHO the mystery musician was and WHAT song Sebastian was playing.
As students pass the ? spaces on the board, they earn suspect cards to help them also identify WHO stold the music, WHY they took it and WHERE they hid it so we can get it back. You could even be a suspect!
Students track their clues (both answers to questions and measures of music they find) in their detective notebook, and, ultimately, figure out Who Done It!
