Produced for the CREST Star Investigators Awards, these materials are aimed at upper primary children and encourages them to investigate fingerprints.
Children discuss what they already know about fingerprints before undertaking activities including:
• Looking at fingerprints with a hand lens or microscope.
• Comparing fingerprints within the class.
• Collecting fingerprints using simple materials.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
