Nothing like a good criminal investigation to liven up social studies! In this activity, students will work in teams to investigate the culprit of six fictional thefts. The criminal has mixed up history and left it disarray. Students must discern fact from fiction to preserve history forever! Teams will work to build a case and present their findings to the court. Hopefully they are convincing enough to win the verdict to catch the criminal.

*There will soon be many more of these CSI activities and the price will include accordingly. In the future, I may split this into two separate U.S. History bundles. In that event, this bundle will include all content up to the start of the Civil War and a second bundle will be made for the other content.
