Format: Paperback
Designed for classrooms in grades 5-8, CSI Expert! Forensic Science for Kids is a guide for educators to rousing kids' interest in science through twenty-five different lab activities concerning hot modern topics ranging from blood stains to fingerprinting and identifying counterfeit checks. A hands-on learning resource that meets national science standards, CSI Expert! divides each lab into (inexpensive) "materials needed", "essential question", "background research", step-by-step "experiment procedures", and various supplementary items such as reproducible data tables for students to fill in or sample charts and graphs. An easy-to-use educational supplement ideal for spicing up one's curriculum, and highly recommended for homeschooling teachers as well as grade school science instructors.

We used activites in this book for several of our programs, and found them to be easy to implement. The supplies needed are everyday, with the exception of a few items for which ideas for purchase are given. Perfect combination of hands on and background!

Format: Paperback
This book is easy to use, extremely teacher-friendly and the students LOVED being involved! It is a wonderful way to spark class participation and interest! The activities are easy for the teacher to set up. The whole middle school enjoyed participating. The problem-solving skills overlap into research and other language arts/social studies skills. This book helps students get involved in the "real world."

This book was in excellent shape when I received it. I had purchased it for my daughter; however, as I looked through the book, I realized it was an activity book for teachers to use in the classroom.

Great resource I used most of the lessons for our csi themed camp. Kids really enjoyed the activities. For me, it was money well spent.

These stories seemed to capture the kids' attention, and they were eager to solve the mysteries. The lessons were a little more advanced than other books I've used.
