Engage your Forensics students with The Case of Hester Higginbotham, a CHAIN-OF-CUSTODY AND EVIDENCE COLLECTION Lab Investigation Activity! Present your students with a mystery- Who killed Hester Higginbotham and where was the primary crime scene?
From year to year, my Forensics students RAVE about this activity, as it allows them to search the school in search of evidence that will solve this case. This easy-to-set-up lab can be used from the year after the initial prep, making it perfect for busy teachers!
