Forensic Final Project

SHOEBOX CRIME SCENE INSTRUCTIONS

Purpose of the Project:

The crime scene will integrate knowledge of concepts learned in Forensic Science over the course of the year. Students will work in groups (2 – 3) or individually to unravel the story behind the crime scene in a box. Create a crime scene diorama: The sky is the limit! Your crime should be realistic & complex, but please avoid sex crimes and overly violent or graphic murders.



Group members will provide:

  • Shoe box for the crime scene diorama

  • Diorama materials

  • Matchbox cars, small dolls, animal figurines, bottle caps, small boxes, etc.

  • Be creative! Use what you have; don’t go out & buy a bunch of stuff.

  • Anything else necessary for creating your crime scene



It is very important that you keep your crime scene SECRET!

Instructions for Project:

  • Obtain a “Shoebox” to use as your crime scene

  • Obtain “PROPS” such as dolls, doll furniture, miniature guns, shoes, etc. that will serve as “evidence” in your crime scene (see me)

  • Create a Police Report and/or Crime Scene Scenario*** and type the crime scene scenario on the appropriate form. The scenario should include:

    • A title for your crime scene

    • Group name and class period

    • The basics of what authorities found when responding to the 911 call. This may include information about possible suspects, motives of others to commit your crime (multiple suspects are good), the condition of the victims and any witnesses. Include any descriptions of these persons and possibly biographical information (where worked, lived, married to, friends with, etc)

    • The scenario should be a minimum of ONE TYPED DOUBLE-SPACED PAGE IN 12 POINT FONT. BE CREATIVE!!!!!

***This Police Report/ Scenario is ALL the information that is given to other groups to solve your crime. Make it as detailed or sparse in information as your group wishes.****

  • A detailed description of all evidence that is found in your scene along with what was responsible for the evidence.

  • A completed reconstruction of you crime scene. This should include how an assailant entered the scene, what happened to the victim, how the crime was carried out by the assailant, and what evidence backs up your claims, etc.

  • An individual evaluations form of the project for each group member.

All FINAL parts of the project should be TYPED in a 12 POINT FONT and DOUBLE-SPACED.
