Mystery and Investigation

The students have been reading a crime investigation mystery novel the past few weeks called Chasing Vermeer.  The novel has been very exciting, and we can’t wait to figure out “who did it?” While we are waiting though, we had the fortunate opportunity for one of our district resource officers, Officer Kevin Flynn, to come by and teach us about fingerprints and investigations. Officer Flynn has extensive knowledge about being a detective and compiling evidence for an investigation. Officer Flynn talked to the students about how to spot different points on fingerprints, the different types of fingerprints, what fingerprints are made of, and he even showed the students how to dust for fingerprints and lift fingerprints off of objects using a fingerprint lifting chamber. The students found it all very exciting, and they can’t wait to do some more investigating!
