Everything you need to teach your Forensic Science students the basics of how to process a crime scene! Includes the topics: How to secure a crime scene. What CSI wear. Steps to process a crime scene. Evidence search methods. How to label and seal evidence. The importance of the Chain of Custody.

The resource was purposefully designed to be NO PREP and flexible, able ot be used in the classroom or for digital learning. 

Resource contains:

Teacher Google Slide - 15 slides can be used in two ways:

  • To lead direct instruction in class or through video
  • Given to the students to use on their own (just provide them a ‘view only’ link to the Google Slide)

Students can complete the assignment in two ways:

  • Student Notes to Print - one page front and back: This is a set of notes that can be printed and completed in class. These can also be shared as a Google Doc for students to complete digitally. Use during direct instruction, or students can complete with access to the Teacher Google Slides
  • Student Google Slides - 10 slides: Digital notes for students to complete. Students can use this alongside the Teacher Google Slides to answer questions. It is an alternative to the Student Notes to Print. 
    • NOTE** There is a hidden Forensics joke on slide #6. As students move the grey boxes into the right order, they will see the joke. The answer is on the top of slide 7. My students get a kick out of the surprise, but feel free to delete the joke and answer if you want! All slides are editable! 

Fifteen question Google Form Review: also flexible! Sometimes I give students the review the next day, allowing them to use their notes (a good incentive to take good notes!). Sometimes they complete the Google Form Review right after taking notes, while they still have the Teacher Google Slides available in case they missed something.

The whole resource is editable!
