This is a middle school forensics lab. In this lab students will be given a mystery powder. Students are worked through the process of testing known powders to create a data set to compare the tests they perform on the mystery powder. This mystery powder lab is also included in the middle school forensics unit and the large science activity bundle, The Lab Bench.
This lab includes background information, student and instructor handouts, and a 5e lesson outline.
Kids love applying the knowledge they have gained and forensic science activities are a great way to make that happen. This is designed as a middle school forensics unit, but is adaptable for a wider age range and could be used in small settings as well.
