    *Please note: This curriculum is designed for students in grades 9-12 and contains content that may not be suitable for students under the age of 16. If you are a middle school teacher that is looking for a curriculum that is geared toward 6-8th grade students, check out my FORENSIC SCIENCE CURRICULUM (FOR MIDDLE GRADES), a bundle specifically designed with age-appropriate content for 6-8th grade students.

    What is the benefit of purchasing this bundle?

    Because it is all-inclusive, this bundle is especially useful for new Forensics teachers or teachers needing supplementary, NO-PREP lessons and activities. It includes over 3000 pages full of editable lessons, lesson plans, activities, quizzes, worksheets, games, assessments and MORE! Be sure to check the buyer testimonials for this resource to see reviews from other Forensics teachers.

    As with all of my bundles, you will receive FREE updates for LIFE! As I add new resources, you will get access for no additional charge! This entire curriculum was written to align with NGSS and Common Core standards. I have over 12 years experience with teaching this course and I work closely with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (in my hometown) to ensure that my content is up to date with current standards and technology.

    What types of files are included?

    You have two options in this curriculum; you can choose to use the printable version, the digital version, or a combination of both. The printable version contains zip files that are divided by unit. Many of the resources are editable Microsoft Office documents and some are secured PDF files. The digital files are organized into Google Drive folders and include Google Slides, Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Form documents.

    All of the assessments (quizzes and exams) and lessons are editable, so that you can customize them to fit your classroom needs.

    Can this curriculum be used in homeschool cohorts?

    Yes. This curriculum includes access to recorded lessons that were added to meet the needs of the homeschool cohorts that are currently using this curriculum. The labs and activities were designed for teachers on a "shoe string" budget and works well with smaller homeschool co-ops. I have also included a digital/virtual option for each lab/activity, providing options for those that do not have access to lab equipment.

    How will this curriculum help teachers that are new to teaching a Forensic Science course?

    Starting a curriculum from scratch can be time-consuming and exhausting! You are a busy teacher and deserve to have a ready-to-go curriculum that offers engaging activities and high-quality content. I spent over 10 years creating this curriculum, experimenting with my own students as I tried out activities, lessons, games, projects and labs. I've done all of the work for you! The printable curriculum was designed with the classroom teacher in mind; however, more recently, I added a digital version to the curriculum to meet the needs of teachers needing digital options. These digital resources have been used by classroom teachers, online teachers and homeschool teachers- all with raving reviews.

    How will this curriculum benefit students? First and foremost, this curriculum offers incredibly engaging labs and activities that are designed to keep the interest of today's modern students, while still offering them rich content that is focused on real-world investigations and case studies. The curriculum is designed to target all learning styles and offers differentiated instruction for 9th-12th grade students. My own students love the design of this course, as it is not the traditional "sit and get" method of instruction. Students are encouraged to collaborate and explore in a student-directed learning environment. This type of instruction works great for advanced/gifted learners, but has proven effective in my inclusion classes as well.

    NGSSHS-ETS1-1
    Analyze a major global challenge to specify qualitative and quantitative criteria and constraints for solutions that account for societal needs and wants.
    NGSSHS-LS1-3
    Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that feedback mechanisms maintain homeostasis. Examples of investigations could include heart rate response to exercise, stomate response to moisture and temperature, and root development in response to water levels. Assessment does not include the cellular processes involved in the feedback mechanism.
    NGSSHS-PS1-2
    Construct and revise an explanation for the outcome of a simple chemical reaction based on the outermost electron states of atoms, trends in the periodic table, and knowledge of the patterns of chemical properties. Examples of chemical reactions could include the reaction of sodium and chlorine, of carbon and oxygen, or of carbon and hydrogen. Assessment is limited to chemical reactions involving main group elements and combustion reactions.
    NGSSHS-PS2-4
    Use mathematical representations of Newton’s Law of Gravitation and Coulomb’s Law to describe and predict the gravitational and electrostatic forces between objects. Emphasis is on both quantitative and conceptual descriptions of gravitational and electric fields. Assessment is limited to systems with two objects.
