Cookie Jar Mystery: A Study in Forensic Science Classroom Kit



Product Details
Grades 4–5. Who stole the cookies from the cookie jar?

This fun, interactive, grade-appropriate, and project-oriented course is designed to engage students in forensic science through 12 dynamic lessons. A crime has occurred in Mrs. Randall's classroom—her favorite cookie jar was broken and some of her homemade cookies were eaten. Working together, your students learn and use forensic science techniques—matching hair samples, examining trace evidence, testing blood samples, fingerprinting, and more—to analyze clues left at the crime scene and catch the culprit! There are 4 suspects, and it is up to the student teams to determine who is guilty through their scientific observation, sample examination, analysis, and lab work.
