What some happy teachers are saying about this resource in our Teachers Pay Teachers store:

I love this bundle. My students, who are learners with various disabilities have been so engaged in the lessons. Participation has been excellent. The support from Science Curiosity has been top-notch! I recommend this bundle to EVERYONE!!                – Lisa C.             March 21, 2023

This bundle is full of great activities for any forensics class. I like the planning documents that have links to all the products and an order to work through. I look forward to seeing the next activities that will be added to it.     – Ms B.           January 11, 2023

I found that most students enjoy the mix of virtual and hands-on learning opportunities that this bundle provides! Each component is laid out clearly with specific teacher guides that help me plan my days.    – Hannah G.          December 3, 2022

This resource finally filled all the gaps I could not fill using textbook resources in my new Forensics elective science class. It has made preparing every lesson a dream and students are super engaged for each activity.             – Denise E.               March 9, 2022

This bundle is EVERYTHING you need! I am a secondary science teacher, I was assigned a new class this semester and simply didn’t have the time to create a curriculum from scratch. I purchased this hoping for the best…. and it has been SO much more than I even hoped for! The notes outlines for students make sense. The keys are helpful. The unit is organized and *ready to go*. There are interactive parts to every lesson. My students have LOVED everything that we have done so far. THANK YOU! I will be buying more from “Science of Curiosity”.                – D.H.                 February 10, 2022

This resource is AWESOME. I have gotten a lot of return on investment. Other forensic units out there are way more expensive for something that won’t cooperate with Google Docs.                    – Mr. R.                       January 10, 2022

This is by far the best resource I have purchased from TpT . The lessons are complete and are very interactive. My students have enjoyed digging into the material through readings, videos, and interactive crime scenes. This has been a great addition to my Forensic Science Class!                      – Cathy E.                     January 4, 2022

The resources are thorough and well organized. I love that there are assessments that go with each of the bundles. I love that I have the option of doing all work digitally, virtually, or in person. I’ve used a lot the digital resources as make up assignments for students who are absent. Being able to have all of these resources really cuts down on my prep time. These resources are also more rigorous than many of the other resources I have looked at.                 – Samantha C.                     October 19, 2021

The effort and workmanship, with engaging videos and cases to solve, is amazing and such a help with my science classes.                    – Allison B.               April 4, 2022
