Product Description
What if the Seven Dwarves used toxicology to determine the poison that harmed Snow White? Prince Charming could have saved himself a lot of time by running tests on blood left in the glass slipper. And a simple fingerprint scan might have given Rumplestiltskin's true identity without all the guesswork...

In this project from I Heart Teaching Science, all of these and more are possible as students write forensic fairy tales! A forensic fairy tale is a classic fairy tale with a forensic twist. This is the perfect review activity for a short forensic science unit in a life science or chemistry classroom or a culminating activity in a forensic science class. Students are asked to identify potential evidence and tests that could be run on that evidence. Students take their writing through 2 rounds of peer editing before turning in their completed fairy tales.

This is a great way to incorporate literacy and creativity into a science classroom, and the freedom in the assignment allows for more student choice, leading to higher engagement.

This packet includes the following:
-A teaching guide with a sample schedule and descriptions of each worksheet
-An assignment overview with space for you to write in your own due dates
-A brainstorming sheet and a planning sheet to help your students with their writing
-2 different peer editing worksheets
-A rubric for grading
All documents are in .pdf format.
