*Videos are necessary for completion of these worksheets.
Please watch the video in advance of your students to gauge appropriateness.


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:


BAD MEDICINE (Season 9, Episode 8)
A young woman suddenly becomes critically ill; her symptoms worsen over time, eventually leaving her unable to walk. Then a bone marrow test reveals the cause: arsenic. Investigators now had to determine if the poisoning was caused by groundwater contamination, or something much more sinister.

BREAKING NEWS (Season 8, Episode 19)
A young TV news producer is raped and murdered in her apartment. Police identify two suspects, but both are cleared of any wrongdoing. The case stalls for more than a year, and then investigators turn to the Commonwealth of Virginia's DNA Databank which houses profiles of more than 8,000 convicted felons, and is the first of its kind in the nation. A comparison of the crime scene evidence with the Databank profiles results in Virginia's first cold hit in a homicide investigation, and reveals the identity of the killer.

BUMP IN THE NIGHT (Season 10, Episode 34)
The crime scene was awash with blood. The victim had been brutally murdered as he slept in his own bed. There were no foreign fingerprints in his home, but investigators did find a shoe impression in the mud outside physical evidence they hoped would lead them to the killer.

COLD HEARTED (Season 12, Episode 3)
When a young fireman died from what appeared to be serious but undiagnosed heart disease, his family and friends were devastated but they had no proof of foul play. Then they learned that, six years earlier in a nearby town, a young police officer died in the same way. The men had one thing in common: At the time of their deaths, they were married to the same woman.

LIGHTS OUT (Season 13, Episode 48)
The decade-old murder of a young Texas housewife is re-investigated as new testing methods in DNA and skin cell acquisition become available in forensic laboratories. But will this new technology finally help catch a killer in this cold case?

MURDER SHE WROTE (Season 11, Episode 7)
A woman who was known to have suffered from depression apparently took her own life. But her sister told police that, a year before her death, she said if anything were to happen to her, there was a note in the china cabinet. Investigators found the note and the killer.

ROOT OF ALL EVIL (Season 6, Episode 20)
In 1981, Charlotte Grabbe, wife of prominent Illinois farmer Fred Grabbe, disappeared from her farm without a trace. For three years, investigators searched in vain for any trace of Charlotte. Eventually, Fred Grabbe's former lover came forward with a fantastic tale of rage, murder, mutilation and cremation, but there seemed to be no way to test the validity of her story. That is, until a plant pathologist and a dendrochronologist conducted some tests on the plant life where the cremation supposedly occurred, which led to a surprising revelation.

SCOUT’S HONOR (Season 7, Episode 12)
In Pennsylvania 1984, a passer-by finds the torso of a woman in a cardboard box. Investigators rely on insect activity analysis by a forensic entomologist to determine when the murder victim was killed. She remained unknown until a year later, when her sister called to report her missing. Eventually she was identified as Edna M. Posey. Investigators then looked into Donald Ruby, whom Edna had asked to watch her 11-year-old son Randy. Investigators theorized that Donald Ruby had grown fond of Randy and killed Edna to keep her from taking her son back. Donald Ruby was convicted of her murder, but would further forensic entomology change the outcome?

SIGN OF THE CRIME (Season 13, Episode 34)
In little more than a month, two women who lived in the same apartment complex were brutally murdered. The similarities of the crime scenes led police to conclude they were dealing with a serial killer who harbored an intense hatred of women... and they had to find him before he struck again.

SUMMER OBSESSION (Season 10, Episode 27)
In an affluent suburb of Philadelphia, police were called to the scene of what appeared to be an accidental drowning. The investigation gradually focused on one person, a suspect who had more than a million reasons to want the victim dead


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.
