The Case of the Contaminated Creek Kit

(in stock)


Grades 6–8. For a class of 30. What? A crime in Crystal Creek? This "whodunit" cold case has an attention-grabbing environmental slant. Students analyze macroinvertebrate species, hair samples, glass samples, lip prints, DNA data, and other assorted clues as they try to deduce the mysteries surrounding the case of Crystal Creek. The cross-curricular kit even engages middle school students in an engineering project with design modifications. Kit includes activity materials and instructional resources on a USB drive (digital teacher's manual, student worksheets, fake Facebook® pages, suspect videos, and answer keys). Note: A microscope is needed but not supplied.
