  • Target Grades: 5-8

This kit takes students through six exercises using reasoning, common sense, math skills, biology, and chemistry to identify a crime scene: Scene Mapping, Hair Analysis, Soil Analysis, Rope Analysis, Analysis of Crime Scene Trash, and Interpretation of Police Evidence. When suspects and victims enter and/or leave a crime scene they bring with them and carry away useful pieces of evidence.
