This DNA CASE STUDY PROJECT is the perfect way to introduce or review DNA profiling in Forensics! This resource requires no prep and can be assigned digitally or printed. I have included a 2-page student instruction guide as well as a grading rubric, making it perfect for busy teachers. I like to use this resource as an introduction to my DNA Profiling unit. I provide my students with 1 day to research, 2 days to complete the project and another 2 days for student presentations. My students LOVE learning about real life forensics cases and are always so engaged! It’s one of my favorite lessons because it requires NO WORK on my part- it’s completely student directed! In the event that you want to make changes, you can! I have included an editable version so that you can customize for your classroom needs.
Need a digital option? No problem! I have included both a printable and digital (Google Slides) version of this resource, making it perfect for distance learning, flipped classrooms, online courses and traditional face-to-face classrooms. (This resource is Google Classroom compatible.)
Students will research a real-life Forensics case where DNA profiling was used, create a Google Slides presentation to showcase their research and present their findings to the class. (If you are teaching remotely, I highly suggest using Flipgrid to have your students share their research.)
