This is a handout I gave my high school students as part of a large, long-term CSI project. This piece involves how to analyze fingerprints, particularly your own. A fingerprint ink pad must be available in order to do this assignment so that students can analyze their own thumbprints.
Included is the following:
Suspect profile page
Fingerprint analysis page and associated questions
Creative writing portion where students design and write their own crime fiction short story
Exit card questions
This activity can easily be tied into a current mystery novel being read in the classroom!
