This purchase is for a bundle assignment package. Included are 10 worksheets for episodes of the television program Forensic Files. All of the episodes are available to view online for free (my preference is through YouTube). This makes this program great for in-class, computer lab, extra credit, or homework assignments since most students will have access to the programs through a variety of means on their own time. Each episode is 20-22 minutes in length.

The question sheets go in order through each episode with a focus on the science behind each case as well as the legal circumstances. I try to provide a variety of episodes to give students a wide range of ideas on how the career of a forensic scientist works. The episodes included in this bundle package (with their season and episode number) are:


A BAG OF EVIDENCE (Season 7, Episode 29)
The murder of 9-year-old Jessica Knott is investigated. Investigators use a garbage bag to connect suspect James Edward Crow, Jr. to the crime.

A CLEAN GETAWAY (Season 10, Episode 22)
An employee of a drycleaner was raped and murdered in the store, and investigators thought themselves fortunate to have two eyewitnesses. Their descriptions were similar but not identical, and the prime suspect didn't come close to resembling that person. Police turned to forensic science for the answers they needed.

ALIBI (Season 7, Episode 5)
In 1991, a high school girl vanishes, after attending a party. Her abandoned vehicle was found in a school parking lot, near her home. The prime suspect had not one, but two alibi witnesses for the night she disappeared. A solid alibi can often overcome much circumstantial evidence. But forensic evidence, though, is another matter.

FASHION POLICE (Season 13, Episode 17)
The victim has been stabbed more than thirty times, and the crime scene is awash with her blood. Near her head, police discover a distinctive button with strands of thread still attached. If they can find the owner of the shirt the button came from, they'll also find the killer.

HACK ATTACK (Season 8, Episode 39)
A mysterious computer crash pushed a thriving manufacturing company to the brink of collapse, jeopardizing the jobs of hundreds of employees. There was no apparent cause; there were no obvious clues. Forensic investigators had to determine if the crash was the result of a computer defect, human error, or sabotage.

HAUNTING VISION (Season 4, Episode 11)
In 1967, Lori Keidel, her two sisters and her brother were left home alone while their father went to a nearby laundromat. Suddenly, a large blaze engulfed their brick ranch home, killing Lori's sisters. A few months earlier, the children's mother had disappeared. In 1993, Lori found the courage to tell police the vision that had possessed her for 29 years: that Lori had witnessed her mother's death.
HIGH N’ DRY (Season 10, Episode 38)
When Genell Plude was found dead in her bathroom, the scene pointed to suicide. But a coroner's inquest and a unique application of forensic science gave investigators a different explanation for her death. It was a theory which, if true, could turn her husband Doug into the prime suspect.

IF I WERE YOU (Season 11, Episode 28)
In 1994, Paul Gruber's daughter suspected something was wrong when she received birthday cards addressed from Gruber, on which the handwriting wasn't Gruber's. When she then learned virtually everything had been removed from her father's Sandpoint, ID home, she was sure of it. Investigators soon discover that Gruber had hired handyman Darryl Kuehl, who killed Gruber and then went about keeping up the appearance that Gruber was still alive.

THREE’S A CROWD (Season 14, Episode 4)
In 1999, Susan Fassett was gunned down as she left church choir practice in Poughkeepsie, NY. Her husband Jeff became the prime suspect, particularly when police learned he found out just a month earlier that his wife had been cheating on him for three years. Once her husband Jeff was cleared by police, he pointed to Fred Andros who was the man she was having the affair with. Fred then pointed to Dawn Silvernail, another of Fred's lovers.

WHO’S YOUR DADDY? (Season 7, Episode 4)
In 1988, the body of a young woman was discovered in an Ohio river under ice. Most of the evidence found at the crime scene – hairs, fibers, & fingerprints-- had been washed away. But the victim's 6 year-old son unwittingly told investigators all they needed to know about the killer... and he did it without saying a word. The clue was in his genes.


Questions on the assignment go in order and will help students remain focused on key science topics. Two extended response questions are on the back of the worksheet (description, sequence, compare/contrast, etc…) which are perfect for reflection and discussion at the conclusion of the video. All worksheets are provided as MS-Word documents so you can edit as needed. Answer sheets are not provided. A power point is also provided with 10 additional writing prompt questions (one per episode) that go beyond those provided on the worksheet. This is a great way to begin class the following day (or perhaps a “pop quiz” to see who watched the episode).

I hope you and your students find this purchase useful and it gives them great insight into the important field of forensic science. Please check my TPT store for additional Forensic Files worksheets, bundles, and informational articles.

Thank you for your purchase and for taking the time to leave me positive feedback.
