This program includes significant forensics material and crime scene information. In this way, it differs from our “Human Body and Forensics for 4th to 6th Grade,” which contains just a flavor of forensics material. It is worth noting that much of the forensics study completed this year focuses on the collection of evidence found at a crime scene, which may or may not be the scene of violence. Forensic science is used when collecting evidence at robberies or arson crime scenes, for instance. However, it is assumed that much of the practice of forensic science does involve a dead body, whether that person died violently or from natural causes. The resources that cover these topics have been chosen based upon their thoughtful approach, educational value, and the intriguing way in which they present the forensic information
