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.
