An Activity Resource for “Human Body and Forensics Jr/Sr High”
Target Age Group: Grades 6-12
Type of Resource: Non-Consumable
This Activity Resource
Students will attempt to solve cases using forensic techniques and testing. Fingerprinting, tire tracks, chemical tests and more will challenge a student to use deductive reasoning to solve these cases. Lab work is chosen to be very low-prep, with only a few supplies needed. Parents can set up a “crime scene,” and prepare other things quite easily in advance, mostly with household supplies, and a good supply of index cards and envelopes. Only one activity requires truly unusual supplies; this is noted, and can either be skipped, or the parent has much of the year to purchase the supplies. Overall, these activities have been chosen to give you a fantastic, low-prep experience!
