Session: Who Dunnit?

Who Dunnit?


Take your blood typing activity to the next level! This session will demonstrate how to take a basic activity like blood typing and tie it into a broader narrative in a way that really connects with NGSS and 3-D learning. We will also demonstrate how you can construct a meaningful activity without expensive chemicals and equipment. You will use simple household chemicals to simulate ABO blood type tests to eliminate suspects from suspicion. You will then conduct a simulated DNA analysis to further determine who the real perpetrator might be.
