Students become CSI Investigators hot on the tail of a criminal who ran amok in their school. Using grid provided grid co-ordinates they travel around their school grounds speaking with witnesses who provide them with information until they can confidently arrest a suspect from a provided suspect pool. A guaranteed hit in your classroom!
All things necessary provided in the lesson package, along with instructions for how to personalize the maps and information to YOUR school location!
FOR USE IN LANGUAGE CLASSROOMS:
The lesson, while focusing on teaching students how to locate coordinates using latitude and longitude is also an exceptional resource for language students who are learning to describe people (eye colour / hair colour / height etc). Witness testimony can easily be simplified and translated so as to require students to gather testimony, translate it, and match it to the basic info provided in their suspect pool. I've tried it, and it works! :)
