Crime Scene Investigation-Science 7

The above is a video of a lesson on Viscocity.

Mrs. Vallis, Mrs. Rutten and I developed a unit on Liquids for science class. To teach Viscocity and about jobs involving liquids, we set up a murder scene, complete with Crime scene tape and blood splatters. The students had to use some knowledge of blood splatters/patterns, critical thinking, and teamwork skills to solve the murder, which they did, with little help. They had to then write up a "police report" of guided questions to reveal their understanding.

It was awesome to see kids working in a hands on way with the material and smiling a heck of a lot in the process.
