Product Description
This is a forensic science project that will take about 6 days to complete, depending on how much in-class work days your provide. Students will make a physical model of a crime scene, along with a typed scenario and a detailed description of the evidence. Groups will be trading their model and scenario with another group, who will in turn reconstruct the crime and determine the actual happenings of the crime (including the suspect and his/her MMO). This will then be compared to the "real story" designed by the makers of the crime. Included is a 2 page description of the project and an evaluation sheet. This is a fun project that my students have really enjoyed. Besides having some basic art supplies and possibly some boxes for the crime scene, there isn't any teacher prep work for this project. However, the students should have some basic knowledge about forensic science, such as MMO (motive, means, and opportunity), types of evidence, etc... For more advanced classes, this could easily be more challenging by requiring them to include certain terms within the story, as well as a description of the court process.
