Literacy Resource

Here is a website that I have used in the past with Years 5 & 6. It's called FFFBI - Fin, Feathers and Fur Bureau of Investigation.
It is a series of stories and challenges based around a crime that has been committed. The activities are interactive and involve online quizzes, printable worksheets and puzzle solving. There is a fair amount of reading for the students and if they don't read all the instructions they cannot move forward.
Each crime takes the students about 40-45 minutes to solve. Every time I have used this website the engagement level of the students is very high.
I will be using it with Yr 6 Literacy this Tuesday if anyone is interested in taking a look at it.
