Apply scientific techniques to the real world by teaching your students to see through the eyes of a crime scene investigator. This book is divided into four sections that each cover a different branch of science, so no matter what you teach, you can use these investigations to supplement your curriculum. Section 1 focuses on observation, experimentation, and critical thinking; section 2 teaches techniques used in the physical sciences; section 3 looks at evidence left by living things and employs techniques used in life science analysis; and section 4 explores how archeology and anthropology can influence the outcome of an investigation. Each section contains several lessons that include background information and a lab investigation. Softcover, 273 pages.
