FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) — Ms. Gockel did it in the library with the camera.
Or did she?
Students recently began a weeklong investigation at Tibbetts Middle School when their teacher, Erin Gockel, arranged a school-wide game of who-dunnit for her seventh- and eighth-grade current events class.
Students by the end of the week hoped to figure out who stole the school’s most expensive digital camera, and they intend to solve the case like real sleuths.
