Product Description
Groups as large or as small as you like supply fingerprints from each member creating a set of CLUES, SUSPECTS, and an answer sheet. CLUE and SUSPECT sheets are traded with another group and then each sets out to match the CLUE print with the SUSPECT print.

This is a fun game to play to introduce students to the basics of forensics and evidence collection. I use with my grade 11 and grade 12 law students and they love the slightly competitive nature of it, as well as getting to 'play.'

I start by introducing the topic of fingerprints, a brief history and a look at some basic classifications (loop, double loop, central pocket loop, plain arch, tented arch, plain whorl and accidental). Examples are easily found online.

I then have students take their own fingerprints and categorize them.
- to lift a good impression rub a pencil on a piece of paper, rub finger in the resulting graphite smear, press gently onto sticky side of clear tape. Tape is then stuck to a white paper for easy viewing.

With this practice under their belts, I then have them do this larger group fingerprint challenge.
