Students LOVE being REAL CSI’s for the DAY!
In TEAMS or Partners--they make two sets of their own INDEX Fingerprint– and compare to the National Standards in a Bar Graph and Pie Chat. Then, they add their 2nd Print to the CLASS POSTER– and they compare the CLASS’s fingerprint percentages (all guided with pre-formatted graphs!) to the National Standard’s for the 3 TYPES: LOOP, WHORL, and ARCH. They decide which graph showed their DATA best, the BAR or PIE/CIRCLE GRAPH?
REAL ANALYSIS– just like CSI! Trust me – this is a WINNER! And the POSTERS with all the Fingerprints look great up in your CLASSROOM– everyone can see that you ROCK THE SCIENCE!!
I promise this is NOT Science Light!
NOR will it require a million copies!
I hope this LAB helps you ROCK the Science in your classroom!
