This Science Guide for “Human Body and Forensics”
“Human Body and Forensics” is an intriguing science program designed to show your junior high and high school students just how amazing their bodies are, and discover the intricate mysteries of forensics!
The resources this guide coordinates allow students to spend a year discovering the various systems inside your body! Go “inside” these systems to discover how you breathe, eat, think, move and feel in depth. Then, get to know everything you want to know about the exciting field of forensics. Hear about crimes and the kinds of evidence forensic scientists track down, then try exciting lab work such as digging for clothing clues, analyzing evidence, measuring out a “crime scene,” and working through case studies. Fantastic resources allow students to learn by observation and simple experiments. Fantastic resources allow students to learn by observation and simple experiments.
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.
Using This Science Study
Each week your student will work through several resources. There is a lot of content in the activities, and most of them are very simple to complete and require limited supplies. Any needed supplies beyond common items such as art or household supplies are listed in the back of this guide.
Our science programs are designed to complement the comprehensive nature of our themed programs. This one can be completed in 2.5 to 5 hours per week. Many parents choose to do science on their “fifth” day that WinterPromise does not schedule themed program assignments.
This guide is non-consumable. The only consumable in the overall program are copies you’ll make of pages in some of the resources, and the coloring book, “Gray’s Anatomy.”
