CSI Year 5

Crime Scene Investigation!

Who did it and why? Year 5 students hopped into action to investigate a very mysterious crime in the corridor.

By Mr. Cox, Year 5 Teacher

In this unit Year 5 became police deputies and forensic scientists. They used the outstanding picture book, ‘Tuesday’ by David Weisner, as a base for all learning — including English (writing reports) and Science, where they use investigations into different materials to uncover their secrets; focusing on properties of materials, solubility and separation.

No one is sure of what exactly was happening in the Y5 corridor one foggy morning recently, nor indeed why. However, with the unexpected discovery of mysterious froggy slime, hundreds of lily pads and the urgent arrival of the BSG police, some strange things have been going down!

Our special team of Year 5 detectives began trying to solve this mystery. Students interviewed witnesses and the forensic and circumstantial evidence was analysed — trying to find out who, or what, might have masterminded such chaos.

Whatever the cause of the strange events, Year 5 were very enthusiastic about being good investigators. Let’s hope they catch those slimy, sinister suspects soon!

It could've been a number of people...or frogs. Ms Prendi, Year 5 Teacher
