National Standards for Grade Levels 5-8


Students work through six experiments using math skills, biology, chemistry, problem solving, and deductive reasoning to determine whether the cabin is the crime scene. Activities include Scene Mapping, Hair Analysis, Soil Analysis, Rope Analysis, Analysis of Crime Scene Trash, and Interpretation of Police Evidence. Like real crime scene technicians, students learn to conduct a proper search and to avoid destroying evidence. They also learn to properly gather and document evidence and make factual interpretations of evidence left by suspects and victims. Allow 4 hours of lab time to complete the experiments. Required, but not included: microscopes, graduated cylinders, test tubes, rulers, markers, notebook paper, white paper, and water. Designed for 24 students working in groups of four.
