Description

Celebrate the holidays – forensics style! In this activity, your students will be a part of solving a yuletide heist. Can they solve the case of THE GREAT CHRISTMAS CAPER?

 

Case Overview:

On Christmas eve, after Santa set out gifts for the children of Hollyville, a dastardly thief entered four homes and stole the gifts. The Hollyville police department recovered evidence from all four homes and has sent the evidence to your students in hopes that they can solve the case of the Great Christmas Caper.

 

This activity can be executed in multiple ways. If you are looking for a simple, print-and-go option, you can simply print the case files and provide them to your students for a student-directed activity.

 

If you want to make this a full-out mock crime scene (complete with props and labs), I have included some extension activities and ideas that you can use.

 

What’s included:

★Teacher Instructions Page

★The Great Christmas Caper Presentation (PowerPoint)

★16 Printable Case Files (see preview for a complete list of these files) ★Student Notes Printables Page

★Case Conclusion Worksheet

★Mystery Powder Investigation Lab (Extension Activity)

★Hair Analysis (Extension Activity)

★Fiber Burn Analysis Lab (Extension Activity)

★Cookie Bite Impression Analysis (Extension Activity)

★Case Explanation Page

 

Your students are going to love this mystery! It’s the perfect no-fuss activity leading up to winter break. I use it in my own classroom, where I teach 11th and 12th graders. Since there is no “murder” or gory details, this activity would also be perfect for a middle school classroom as well.

 

Important Information:

→The extension activities only provide red herrings and are not crucial to solving the case.

→All of the extension activities/labs are editable so that you can edit them to fit your classroom needs.

→Many of the 16 printable case file sheets are editable, so that you can customize the case to fit your needs. Some of the files contain clipart/fonts/images that are protected by the artist’s TOU. When using these images/clipart/fonts, I have locked the images as a PDF document. You will not be able to edit those.

→The file format for this resource includes Microsoft PowerPoint files and PDF documents.
