Lesson One: Lifting Latent Fingerprints

Crime scene investigators practice collecting fingerprints off of surfaces in order to compare them to an imaginary crime suspect's prints. Instructions for using graphite powder and a Zephyr brush to collect the evidence are outlined. Index cards for recording information and drawing the fingerprints are included. A third page lists several other activities for an entire forensics exploration. Worksheets for the other activities may be found via the Lesson Planet website.

I am a first year homeschool mom. I found Lesson Planet and was impressed with the amount of resources that are available online! I have been able to find content that was age appropriate and relevant to the areas my 3 kids are studying. And knowing that these are plans created by teachers makes me confident in presenting the material to my children.
