This is a great activity for a Forensics course or unit on pathology. Students visit a website that has 18 different examples of autopsies with lab results for each body system. Students record all relevant information and then try to determine the cause of death. This can be used as an introduction to the unit, as an activity within the unit, or even as a great sub plan!
The following handouts are included in this document:
Virtual Autopsy Student Handout (MS Word File)
Virtual Autopsy Student Handout (PDF)
The students love this project, even seniors who are nearing the end of their high school days! Each file is included as both PDF and Word document so you can customize as needed. For more tips on teaching Forensics see my blog and please comment your questions, suggestions, or successes!
