Product Details

The ditches of the town of Bradley have been recently polluted with litter. Local authorities have narrowed the list of suspects down to four individuals. It is up to your students—acting as forensics scientists—to determine the culprit. Who is dumping their garbage on the streets of Bradley? Students will gather and classify evidence from different locations throughout the town to solve the crime. This excellent, hands-on forensics activity will be a hit in your classroom. A fun, scenario-based activity for all ages. Includes detailed background information, easy-to-follow procedures, several different scenarios and all materials needed to complete the activity.

Super Value Kit is complete for 30 students working in pairs. All materials are reusable!
