Diablo Highway: Fingerprint Analysis Lab Kit—Option A

Item # 212283

Grades 6–12. In this lab, students learn how to identify fingerprint characteristics, including the differences between class characteristics (arches, loops, and whorls) and individual characteristics (bifurcation, enclosure, ridge ending, short ridge, delta, and ridge dot). They also learn how to use a microscope and their unaided eyes to identify these characteristics. Based on details from the Diablo Highway Kit (item #212188) crime scene, this lab can also be used as a stand-alone activity.
