Case of the Murdered Mayor.

AU$303.10 ex GST

For a class of 30 working in groups of 3. Students assume the role of crime scene investigators as they use their observational skills and deductive reasoning to solve a realistic crime scenario. They attempt to identify a prime suspect from a pool of 6 alleged perpetrators using these traditional forensic techniques:

  • Fingerprinting
  • Hair analysis (requires low-power microscope, not included)
  • Tire track impression analysis
  • Blood typing (using synthetic blood)
  • Forensic entomology (with artificial fly larvae or maggots)
  • Police log review

Kit includes a teacher’s manual with student guide, reproducible masters, report forms, and extension activities.
