How to Play the Death Investigation Review Game:

  • Students are put into groups. Groups take turns choosing questions that can be worth 5, 10 or 15 points.
  • If the group gets the question correct, they then choose a Mystery Card! This card may ask students to swap groups, or give up points to another group, or offer the chance for more points if the team does something fun (like sing Row Row Row Your Boat!)
  • The game continues until all questions have been answered. The group with the highest score wins!


The entire review game is digital, contained inside one Google Slide set with 74 Google Slides! Click question numbers to be brought to that question, then again to see the answer. Choose ‘Home’ to go back to the first slide. Click the smiley face to go to the Mystery Cards!


This review game was made for Science of Curiosity’s Death Investigation Evidence Test, but can be used and adapted to any Death Investigation Forensics Unit. The slides are fully editable!
