Product Description
A car has been found abandoned with keys in the ignition on the side of the road. What happened to the driver? Who else might be involved?

Students will analyze document, blood typing, fiber, and fingerprint evidence to determine what may have happened to the driver of the car. There are pre-activity questions, evidence analysis worksheets and questions, and conclusion questions.

This activity is almost print-and-go. There is one small prep component which is explained below. This activity is a good sub plan for forensic science (if you can do the prep in advance or have the sub do it). It is also a good activity for students who are absent or otherwise not in the classroom.

Teacher Prep:
-For the document analysis the teacher will need to shred a provided document, a paper cutter or scissors will work, but if available a straight cut shredder is the fastest route. (I enlist student volunteers for this part!) Tape is needed for reconstruction.

Other than the document, all evidence is included in the packet (photos of fibers, flame test results, blood typing results-students must know how to interpret these!)

Want an activity with a lab component? Check out:Crime Scene Investigation with Lab Component It is the same case, just with lab for the blood typing and fiber analysis. Or you can buy both versions in this bundle
