During this activity at Central High School, students walked into a crime scene that involved the fictitious death of an individual named Anna Garcia. Students were asked to play the role of a crime scene investigator by examining and sketching the crime scene to gather and uncover key information that could have resulted in Anna’s death.  

This preliminary activity introduced students to the experiential process, and will later be follow-up by designing and performing experiments to investigate how height affects bloodstain patterns, and how ambient temperature affects the rate of cooling in a dead body.
