VIDEO AVAILABILITY DISCLAIMER: The videos needed to accompany the Forensic Files worksheets can be found on a variety of streaming services and websites. However, availability and prices for these videos can change month-to-month. Please make sure you have access to both the video and that your school’s servers can stream the content before making your purchase. Forensic Files can be found online easily at: YouTube (also check for “Medical Detectives”) and IMDB. Streaming services like Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon also have varying seasons and episodes. Each worksheet has the to make any Internet searches for accessing the correct video quick and easy.
Included are 10 worksheets for various episodes. Ease of access to the videos makes them 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.
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 I have chosen are perfect for high school age and I do try to avoid certain adult aspects which I do not feel are appropriate for students. So rest assured that each episode is perfect for ages 14-18.
