Solving Mysteries Using Science Skills.
With a focus on literacy and science, middle school students are challenged to use scientific inquiry to crack the case on three different mysteries presented in Science Sleuths: Solving Mysteries Using Scientific Inquiry (ISBN-13: 978-1-59363-397-4). Each case is introduced with crime scene photos, and the excitement mounts as more and more evidence is introduced. Acting as forensic scientists, students will work to form an initial hypothesis, gather and assess data, analyze lab reports, conduct interviews, and keep crime logs to extract pertinent information and solve each case. Products include a thorough analysis of the evidence, a re-creation of the case, and a graphic organizer explaining the suspects' means and motive. After all, it is the responsibility of the forensic scientist to uncover the evidence that determines which suspect is guilty! For more information, contact Prufrock Press, Inc., P.O.
