As of January 2017, episodes of Forensic Files can be found FREE on You Tube and through various pay streaming services. The two episodes in this collection can also be purchased as DVDs in the Forensic Files : Historic Cases Collection V1 (available at Amazon or other media sellers).
This two video worksheet purchase focuses on new forensic methods and technology that were first used to solve murders that might otherwise have remained unsolved. These are great episodes to demonstrate to students the value of science and technology when solving real world crimes.
Drowning Sorrows (Season 13, Episode 23)
A family vacation turns into a nightmare when the wife is found face-down in the lake. There are no witnesses and little conclusive evidence to help police determine if they're dealing with a suicide, an accident, or something more sinister... until a forensic pathologist uses a groundbreaking technique to discover the truth.
Reel Danger (Season 7, Episode 3)
The investigation into a brutal attack on two boys near a pond relies on evidence fished out of the murky water. It was the first case where Diatom evidence was used to place a suspect at the scene of the crime. The evidence helped in the conviction of Christopher Green & Brian Davis, who were both 16 years old and were tried as adults. Their accomplice Jason, who was a minor, was sent to a juvenile detention center.
Questions on the assignments go in order and will help students remain focused on key forensic science topics. Two extended response questions are on the back of each worksheet (description, sequence, compare/contrast, etc...) which are perfect for reflection on the importance of these ground breaking cases.
Both worksheets are given as MS-Word documents which will allow easy modifying to best fit the needs of your students.
Thank you for your purchase and for taking the time to leave me positive feedback.
