Spark your students' interest the next time you teach ACCELERATION with this engaging CSI style activity. Students are presented with a dilemma, the school's mascot has been murdered! Crime scene investigators provide the students with important information that they will then use to determine the speed and acceleration of the bullets that were collected from suspects' weapons. After creating speed and acceleration graphs, students will then derive a verdict from their calculations.
This activity beats the traditional worksheet, while still providing students with the practice that they need to master speed and acceleration concepts. My students love the CSI style, inquiry based teaching that this activity has to offer. Included with this activity is a complete teacher answer key.
