Students can use these activities to compare and contrast similarities and differences between them and friends. It’s great to use with “About Me” and Science standards. For both activities you can use a stamp pad or pencil rubbings to create the fingerprints. Cover up with tape or laminate to preserve the rubbings.
Activity One- students can compare their finger print to two friends. He or she may be amazed to know that each of their fingerprints are unique and make them an individual.
Activity Two- Make a class book of finger prints. Then stage a pretend crime scene using the one of the students fingerprints. Have students use the “Detective Notebook” to identify the fingerprints!
