The Case of the Missing Mascot!
with Shaun Moshasha
Your students must find out who took the school mascot before the big game! In this cross-curricular investigation, they examine a note, some strange-looking leaves, a mouth guard, and some white fibers that were left at the scene. After fingerprinting the culprit, students stage a trial. Activities include analyzing DNA results; using dichotomous keys to identify selected plants; and analyzing various pieces of evidence using scientific experiments.
