Preparation and Tutorial Video


  • Organize the mock crime scene:
    • If possible, move furniture to one end of the room to clear an area for setting the scene.
    • Turn over a chair. Place an opened bag or backpack next to it. Put some odds and ends near the bag to make it look as if the bag has been searched.
    • Sprinkle some sand near the chair.
    • Place “membership card” on floor between door and chair, but away from where students will sit.
    • Rub lotion on hands and place one hand on a window or chalkboard.
  • Using the 1/4 inch graph paper, create your mock crime scene sketch:
    • Put in windows, doors and evidence labeled A, B and C (Scale: 1/2 in=1 ft.)
    • Make enough copies for each student
  • Assemble supplies for student groups.
  • Leave the room and attach crime scene tape across doorway. Make sure you have the Instructor’s Guide.
  • Organize students in groups of 4.
