CSI Crime Scene Investigations!
This week we will be shifting gears to explore a student-selected topic, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. During our seminar session we will rotate through the following stations:
CSI Station 1: Five Minute Mysteries- During this time the students will use their problem-solving and critical thinking skills to solve five-minute mysteries. These mysteries are not easy, and will require the students to pay attention to detail, and think outside of the box!
CSI Station 2: Handwriting Analysis- Forensic analysis often involves the examination of hand-written materials. When analyzing a sample of handwriting, forensic scientists look for particular characteristics that can be used to distinguish the writer. Even when someone attempts to disguise their handwriting, unique characteristics can still be identified. The students will analyze form, lines, arrangement, and content to match written samples.
CSI Station 3: Spot the Difference- A detective must be observant. Their keen powers of observation will assist them in solving even the most puzzling of crimes. At this station, a robbery crime scene has been tampered with. The students will use their powers of observations to spot the differences!
CSI Station 4: The Power of Observation-A detective relies on their power of observation and attention to detail. We will see how well the students can observe a situation, and answer related questions. Being a good eye-witness is harder than you may think!
CSI Station 5: Fingerprints are impressions made by the papillary ridges on our fingers. These ridges are unique to every human, therefor serving as an ideal form of identification for law enforcement. The students will have the opportunity to learn about the various fingerprint classifications, and practice lifting and observing their own fingerprints!
