Product Details

“Who-dun-it?” Students will learn the key characteristics used in classifying fingerprints as they solve a crime scene mystery. Giant fingerprint sets help students learn key fingerprint patterns and identify their suspect. Interest will be high as students then make their own fingerprints, practice techniques for lifting their own latent fingerprints and classify them. Background information and complete instructions are included. Complete for 30 students working in pairs. Six rolls of ¾" transparent tape is required, but not included in the kit. Super Value Kit is complete for 5 classes of 30 students working in pairs.

Performance Expectations

HS-LS4-5. Evaluate the evidence supporting claims that changes in environmental conditions may result in (1) increases in the number of individuals of some species, (2) the emergence of new species over time, and (3) the extinction of other species.
MS-LS1-1. Conduct an investigation to provide evidence that living things are made of cells; either one cell or many different numbers and types of cells
MS-LS1-3. Use argument supported by evidence for how the body is a system of interacting subsystems composed of groups of cells.
MS-PS1-2. Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.
