For my language lesson at the Aphasia Center, I decided to make a murder mystery! The clients had to gather "clues" throughout the powerpoint and put together who did it. I created badges with each of the characters names on them and made them all play a part. I also printed out the script that I was reading from so they could have a visual. For the higher-functioning clients, I handed out a graphic organizer to help with deciding WHO was the killer!
This activity is a true language activity - you can illicit a TON of language AND use some reasoning skills.
The activity went over well, and the clients were quite the chatty sleuths! They couldn't figure out the killer though...try this with your client and let me know if they solve the mystery!
