This unique resource offers activities in earth, life, and physical science as well as science inquiry and technology. The Grades 6 12 level book provides labs on life, physical, and earth science as well as critical thinking. Like real life forensic scientists, students observe carefully, organize, and record data, think critically, and conduct simple tests to solve crimes like theft, dog napping, vandalism and water pollution. For added fun, each resource features an original cartoon character, Investi Gator for the Elementary level and Crime Cat for Grades 6-12. All activities include complete background information with step by step procedures for the teacher and reproducible student worksheets. Whatever the teacher's training or experience in teaching science, "Crime Scene Investigations" can be an intriguing supplement to instruction.
