Product Description
This 2-page document plus rubric for students can be used in a Forensic Science course. It is included in both MSWord and PDF format. I use this in my 12th grade Forensics course as the first type of evidence that we study in detail.

This product has an example of a fingerprint pattern that has been classified as a loop, whorl, or arch. The ridge count of the fingerprint and 5 minutiae points have been identified. Students can then complete the same analysis of 4 large fingerprints as they complete the task. The fingerprint patterns are large enough to be seen with the naked eye, but a magnifying glass is very helpful to students.

Forensics: Fingerprinting Prezi is used the day before this activity to introduce the topic to students.
