This assignment is perfect to use for either in-class or homework. It can easily be done in a short amount of time and then opens up future lessons/activities to follow on the topic of fingerprints.
The focus on the assignment is a brief introduction to fingerprints and basic fingerprint patterns.
PART 1 - a one page article with 8 question providing a general overview of fingerprint science as used in forensics.
PART 2 - examples of the three major forms of fingerprints (loop, whorl, arch). Students are to look over the examples and then identify the major pattern found in 12 supplied prints. Finally students are to use a few items to get a view of their own fingerprints by completing a chart and identifying each of their fingers and the major print pattern found on it (pencil, tape, scrap paper is all that is required).
The assignment is provided as an MS-Word file so you can modify to best fit the needs of your students. The fingerprint images cannot be altered.
