Here is a short webquest assignment that is ideal for homework, extra credit, or sub plans for high school forensic science classes.
The webquest uses one website (link provided on the sheet) which will help keep a majority of answers similar and allow for follow-up classroom discussion.
The Cold Case Webquest focuses on 10 previously unsolved cases and new science or techniques in forensics and police work that allowed these cases to finally be closed. This is a great overview of 10 cases that could also lead toward reports with students choosing to look deeper into the cases presented with this assignment.
The webquest is provided as an MS-Word document so you can easily edit to best meet the needs of your students.
Thank you for your positive feedback.
