I'm developing a forensic science unit for my 6th graders and I'm trying to think up of some not scary or violent examples of crimes. (I don't want anybody going home and asking their parents "Hey, what is sexual assault?" hmy: ) I teach at a Catholic school and my principal thinks this unit is a great idea, but I just have to be mindful that these kids tend to be "younger" than other 6th graders I've met and the parents raise them a certain way-- I'm sure you're getting at what I mean. Any suggestions? I'm putting together a sketch of a house and it's going to be trashed apart and the kids are going to have to figure out if its the dog that has been outside all day or the cat who's been sleeping upstairs all day.
