This is a fun and short assignment that is ideal for homework, a warm-up, or in-class work. It is perfect to use at the start of any lesson or unit focusing on forensic science or fingerprints.
1) Fingerprint Science Reading Minute - Article and Question Sheet (introduction)
2) Fingerprint Pattern Assignment - Page for 9 suspects (1 fingerprint per suspect) and Question Sheet detailing each crime and allowing students to match prints to exonerate or accuse suspects of committing a crime.
Students will read the article to get basic background on fingerprints and fingerprint patterns. Then they will use the fingerprint pattern information to solve the various crimes described and use partial prints to match each criminal to the crime they committed. The assignment is easy to edit via MS-Word to make it easier or harder based on the students grade level.
