This CSI (Crime Scene Investigation) Unit has Kindergarteners helping their friend Jenny find her missing stuffed animal. They need to help Jenny eliminate places in which she might have left her stuffed animal bunny name Flopper. They sort and put events in order by number. They research about bunnies: where they live, what their footprints look like, what they eat, etc. They look at pictures for clues of Flopper being there. They make predictions about where they think Jenny left Flopper. They use magnetic wands to test which collar is Flopper's, etc.
This unit is meant to be an easy introduction into the scientific method and the process of problem solving.
This is the outline for the unit, meaning I have provided you with a day to day outline of what to do and the worksheets needed for the unit. You will need to purchase some materials for this unit such as a magnetic wand, a magnifying glass or sheet, tweezers, etc. You will also need to peruse through your library to see what books you want to use for research.
