This activity helps students identify their own skills and interests and align those with a potential forensics career. There are 3 parts to this assignment.
Part 1: Forensic potential quiz. This part has 15 multiple choice questions that help the students assess their interests, traits, and skills.
Part 2: Students add up the number of As, Bs and Cs they circled on part 1. Then students pick up the corresponding sheet with 4 potential careers on it. They are to compare their skills and interests to those listed under each career to identify their most and least suitable career.
Part 3: Students create a career card complete with a self portrait, their personal skills, education, and interests.
** We add this to our interactive notebook once we are finished, but this could also be an independent assignment to help students learn about other potential forensics careers.
