Find the perfect Forensic File video episode for your students to watch - one that is related to the topic you are studying!
'Forensic Files' Videos are FREE on the internet (YouTube, Peacock, imdb) - and a fantastic way to show your students Crime Scene Investigators in action!
My first year teaching Forensics I spent hours each weekend previewing Forensic Files videos, looking for ones that matched the particular Evidence topic I was teaching that week. I compiled them into a reference list that I use every year - and now you can use it too!
This list includes 34 (and counting!) of my favorite episodes arranged by topic, and includes a short description of the case and evidence used to solve it. Each time I find another episode worthy of the list, it is added!
Topics Include -
- Trace Evidence (hair, fiber, paint, soil)
- Blood spatter
- DNA (and mitochondrial DNA)
- Impressions (shoe impressions, tire tread impressions)
- Document examination and handwriting analysis
- Explosives (pipe bomb, letter bomb)
Every Forensic Files video has been screened - I excluded any episodes that contained excessive language, nudity, or were overly graphic. There are three videos that include a word or image that may be too much for your students, so I have put a note and a time stamp beside them for you to be aware and maybe skip though that part.
Also, take advantage of this FREE resource to get the MOST learning out of each Forensic File episode! My students complete a Forensics True Crime Video Response Guide each time we watch one. It's formatted to work with any episode, and is a great way to focus students' attention to the Evidence in the case. The guide can also be used for True Crime articles and True Crime books!
