*Videos are necessary for completion of these worksheets. Please make sure you have access to the correct videos for each (both use the 21-minute runtime versions)
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 : Medical Mysteries Collection V1 (available at Amazon or other media sellers).
This two video worksheet purchase focuses on science and forensic methods that were needed to solve crimes, murders, and strange medical situations that might otherwise have remained unsolved. These are great episodes to demonstrate to students the value of science and technology combined with the medical field.
*Fatal Fungus (Season 2 Episode 7)
Doctors in Cleveland became extremely concerned when they had an increase of infants brought to the emergency room with bleeding of the lungs. Doctors quickly called on the Centers for Disease Control and had them investigate the matter. The CDC found that all babies were from the same area and all of their houses had suffered from water damage. After further investigation and research a black fungus was determined the killer of three infants. The fungus develops in moist conditions, becomes airborne and threatens developing organs, much like the fast growing lungs of babies.
*Something’s Fishy (Season 2 Episode 9)
Excedrin bottles were investigated by police after Susan Snow died from taking pills poisoned with cyanide. Investigators later found a chemical used to clean the algae in fish tanks mixed in with the cyanide and, through pet store records, traced the chemical to suspect Stella Nickell. Stella's husband Bruce died from poisoning and, with this new information, they re-opened the investigation of his death. Stella had increased Bruce's life insurance shortly before his death. Because the death had to be accidental in order to receive the insurance pay out, she poisoned several other bottles, waiting for a second case to occur.
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.
