The fascinating world of forensic science is introduced to students in this interactive book that shows them how to find clues, analyze evidence, and crack the case. Combining hands-on investigation with history, science, and technology, kids will have fun learning about the world of forensics, collecting evidence, and performing their own crime lab analysis. The open-ended activities encourage students in the seventh through ninth grades to use their imaginations and skills to experiment, create, and solve problems, while entertaining illustrations and fascinating sidebars illuminate the topic and bring it to life. Educational “Words to Know” are highlighted and defined within the text to reinforce new vocabulary. Projects include documenting a crime scene, identifying fingerprints, analyzing blood splatter, and extracting DNA, and additional materials include a glossary and a list of current reference works, websites, museums, and science centers.
