Encourage children to play detective and identify the thief who stole Mrs Callisto’s laptop with a series of science investigations
Don’t forget, members can access the fantastic Interactive resource , ‘Whodunnit? The case of the stolen laptop’. This interactive crime scene will bring the investigations to life for children.
Conducting forensic investigations to solve a ‘Whodunnit?’ gives children a realistic context in which to make systematic observations and then draw conclusions. The activities that follow link to a fictitious crime committed in a school setting. You can use the crime scene Interactive resource , ‘Whodunnit? The case of the stolen laptop’ (members only) – complete with Chief Inspector Hill, crime scene and suspects – to progress through the investigation, or use the downloadable Poster and Activity sheets (all readers).
The activities such as chromatography and the investigation of shoe scrapings for bicarbonate of soda could also be linked to work on changing materials.
