Crime Scene Investigation

How do you end a unit on the scientific method? By investing a crime scene of course! Mrs. Conjura and Mrs. DeGregorio, science teachers at Sleepy Hollow Middle School, provided the 6th grade Wizard's Physical Science classes with this exciting real world experience.  Students were engrossed in the activity as they observed a crime scene that was set up in the classroom.  They sketched out the scene and wrote observations about what they saw.  Students are excitedly awaiting the results from the "crime lab" to help them further their investigation. The experience was enhanced for the students when SRO Kelly came in to the classes to provide input and advice on how an actual crime scene would function and the process emergency services would take to secure it.
