Crime Scene Activity: This is a quick overview of a Crime Scene Activity that has
been taking place in Mrs. Brillhart’s room, room 305 on Wednesday’s. One day, one of
the rock members came to discover that the ROCK buck store prizes were stolen!
Starting after spring break, we learned different techniques to crime scene solving.
Even if you didn’t come before, feel free to come next week! It will be a quick overview
of what we have learned so far, and at the end, we will do a fun DNA activity and you
can make your own DNA bracelets! The best part will be on May 22, where after school
you will get your evidence packets, and you will use the evidence along with what you
learned to solve the crime scene and find out who stole the prizes!
