Police and reading

In support of their reading unit “Mystery Book Clubs,” third graders at Yahara Elementary School were visited by special guests DeForest Police Chief Jim Olson and Officer Seth Wahl, who shared with the students how police officers solve mysteries and the importance of working as a team. Students learned that many of the skills they are working on as readers are the same skills police officers use in their work. investigating, analyzing, documenting, reviewing, searching, predicting, refining predictions and confirming. Chief Olson and Officer Wahl showed many of the tools they use in their work such as crime scene tape, evidence tents, evidence storage items and a camera. Students had the opportunity to ask questions and even participated in solving a real-life mystery, “The Case of the Missing Candy.”
