Diablo Highway: Crime Scene Mapping Lab Kit

(ships from manufacturer, est arrival 7/18/22)


Grades 6–12. Students learn how to map physical space just like a forensic science investigator in this lab, including how to:

  • Properly document a crime scene with photos
  • Create a field sketch
  • Create a refined map to scale using the rectangular or coordinate system, compass point system, baseline system, or triangulation system

They learn how to use a microscope and their unaided eyes to master these techniques. This activity includes all the tools teachers and students need to conduct the lab (except for microscope, not included). Based on details from the Diablo Highway Kit (item #212188) crime scene, this lab can also be used as a stand-alone activity.

The student's guide includes:

  • A clearly written, graphically rich, easy-to-understand science lesson on crime scene mapping
  • Easy-to-follow procedures for the lab activities
  • Answer tables that students record their results in and submit
