Want to host a mock crime scene in your forensics class, but don’t know where to start? I’ve got you covered!


My student-directed mock crime scene is a performance assessment that tests your students’ knowledge of crime scene investigation. Get the faculty and staff at your school involved in an event that your students will be talking about long after they leave your class!


I’ve included everything that you need to plan, stage, execute, and grade a successful mock crime scene. The included storyline is a fun and engaging way to tie in some of your students’ favorite teachers, coaches, and faculty members to the assessment.
