In this lab activity, students will use paper chromatography to compare the lipstick worn by each female suspect to that of the lipstick found on the envelopes. Students will then analyze the lip prints of each suspect in order to positively identify the “guilty” party. While completing this lab activity, students will employ Framework Science Standard PS1.

This kit has been aligned with all published National Standards.
