Crime Scene Activity: Analyzing Primary and Secondary Source Evidence

“The Case of the Student Teacher Gone Missing” is a customizable activity that asks students to solve a crime based on their analysis of evidence. First students must classify the twelve pieces of evidence as primary or secondary source evidence. Then students must decide which type of evidence they will use: primary or secondary, and explain why.
