Every month, Science Naturally shares one STEM mystery taken from our One Minute Mysteries series. This is a bonus holiday mystery in honor of Halloween! This Halloween mystery story takes just one minute to read and challenges a kid’s knowledge in a variety of science and math disciplines. The brainteasers can be used as independent reading for kids, a guessing game for families, a springboard for school projects, a bell ringer for teachers, or an assessment tool for math and science knowledge and literacy. These mysteries help kids extract the important data needed to solve science, math, and logic problems while strengthening and rewarding reading skills—plus, they're fun!
Now, put on your sleuthing cap and use science to help Belinda figure out who's been blowing out her jack-o-lantern.
