Are you looking for an engaging Forensics lab investigation that is sure to excite your students? Then look no further! This Testing Unknown Substances Found at a Crime Scene lab investigation includes a Forensics twist on the traditional Flame Test lab. Students will receive evidence and a letter from a local detective asking them to test the unknown sample of evidence to determine its identity. Students will burn various salts and record their chemical properties on their EDITABLE student answer document. Then, they will identify their salts and compare to the evidence to solve the crime! This lab was designed for Forensics students, but can be used in Physical Science and Chemistry classes for a fun twist on chemical properties.
