Students will work in teams to solve a “mock” forensic case. They will learn how to plan, execute and search for a missing person, as well as use biographic details from the human skeleton to achieve a personal identification and investigate a cause of death. Student teams will synthesize data collected and write a few sentences about the person(s) they have studied, describing the evidence that supports their conclusions. The lesson wraps up with a classroom discussion to compare findings with other teams.

Digital classroom materials will be provided to educators by January 28, 2022. The lesson is designed to keep students on task for 60-80 minutes and will be followed by a live Zoom Webinar on Friday, February 11, 2022, at 10 a.m. (Pacific) with Dr. Stephanie Calce, Forensic Anthropologist from the University of Victoria. Dr. Calce will give a brief presentation and answer questions submitted by students in advance of the 30-minute Q&A session.
