Product Review of Murder at Old Fields
Forensic science is a tricky topic to teach without allowing learners to get their hands dirty and try some experimenting themselves. Murder at Old Fields is available as a real-world kit or online activity. It is based on the real 1842 double murder of Rebecca and Alexander Smith at a farmhouse in Old Fields, Long Island. In this forensic science lab activity, learners gain evidence and conduct lab experiments on historical artifacts. They take lessons and quizzes while exploring this 3-D crime scene to figure out the case. Overall, this is a great tool to provide a real-world example for forensics classes, and it can help give learners the confidence to pursue a forensic career.
