Product Description
This 121 page and slide bundle – which contains a lesson plan, presentation, activity resources and more – provides students with a riveting introduction to the world of crime scene investigation. A murder mystery scenario is utilized to help students learn the fundamentals of forensic science.

Materials cover the history of forensic science; crime scene investigation and processing; fundamentals of a criminal investigation, and a breadth of forensic techniques including fingerprinting, presumptive blood testing, blood spatter and beyond.


In the past, we've used these materials as part of a 1.5 - 2 hour workshop (year after year – so they're reusable). General feedback suggests that teachers use these materials as part of pre-existing science units or over a longer duration.


Our bundles contain a lesson plan, presentation and presentation transcript – and handouts and worksheets for 5 separate 15-20 minute practical activities.

LESSON PLAN: the lesson plan includes an overview of the session; a lesson structure with suggested durations for each component; a lesson aim; desired outcomes; an extension project suggestion; and a short suggested reading list.

FULL PRESENTATION: each bundle contains a full .pdf presentation – complete with compelling photographs and neat layouts – that is designed to be administered in 20-30 minutes.

PRESENTATION TRANSCRIPT: the presentation is accompanied by a comprehensive transcript (or slide notes) that provides all the content a layperson requires to deliver an informative workshop.

100 WORD VOCABULARY LIST: you'll receive a list of words – ranked as easy, medium and difficult – that pertain to key concepts presented during the workshop (and a few ideas as to how to use these!)

EQUIPMENT LIST: the equipment list provides a breakdown of all the material required to deliver the session – including the hands-on, practical sessions.

RESOURCES FOR 5 X ACTIVITIES: each bundle comes with all the resources you'll require (i.e. handouts, answers) to deliver 5, 15-20 minute hands-on practical sessions: crime scene investigation; fingerprinting; blood spatter analysis; marks and impressions; and expert witness report writing.

There are 5 practicals in this workshop. The broad themes are:

- Crime scene investigation
- Fingerprinting
- Presumptive blood tests and blood spatter analysis
- Impressions
- Writing an expert witness report

NOTE: Our bundle includes a full equipment list. Equipment must be purchased separately.
