Introduction

Welcome to the Mystery WebQuest Site!

If you like reading mysteries and would like to try writing one, you're not alone.  The genre of mystery is highly popular and has existed since the Ancient Greeks.  Its popularity can be found in hit tv shows like Scooby Doo, The Monk Mystery Show and CSI.  
     After solving and discussing the mysteries stories provided with your peers, you will have the opportunity to begin writing your own mystery story.  Mystery writing is great because you don't even realize you're using serious brainpower as you try to outwit your readers, providing them with clues, suspects, motives, alibis and much more.                    
     You never know - you could be the next Agatha Christie or Edgar Allan Poe!
