Stacia and I are working through various Forensic Science this year - possibly our last year to play with science before we have to move to more traditional courses of study. She's in 7th grade this year. Among other things, we have used the book Crime Scene Investigations. We've had fun comparing writing samples, typewriter prints, making casts of shoe prints, and more.
We are currently working through a Crime Scene Science Kit from Home Science Tools. This week we are learning how to lift a print from glass microscope slides, faucets and door knobs.

Stacia began by finger-printing all the people running around here and creating a master list of "suspects and their prints."
|Why did I envision printing powder as white????|
