Alien Bandstand Summary Sheet
Refer to your Notebook file to complete this worksheet.
1. Make a list of the evidence you used to solve the mystery. Put a star next to the evidence that you think was critical to you or offered the most valuable information.
2. Which resource proved beyond a doubt your solution to the mystery? Why? Did you know this resource would be useful before you used it? Why did you think it would be useful?
3. Recall a resource you looked at that offered no help in solving the mystery. How did you know it was a useless resource? Where did you decide to look next? Why?
4. Looking back on your list of evidence, what makes the vital evidence (the
ones marked with stars) more important than the other evidence? Does the distinction
between the two types of evidence make sense to you? Why or why not?
