These board games will allow students to explore the full range of crime scene analysis, deductive reasoning, and solving crime in a virtual world, on the board game rather than reading case files or analyzing documentary films. I believe that students will even find the experience more interesting and engaging than similar online laboratory exercises. Forensic Science is an elective interdisciplinary course students take during their junior or senior year. Since several students a year are deciding to make forensic science, law enforcement, or criminal law a career we focus on the core content of forensics for most of the year. Deductive reasoning is covered in the introduction to the class, but I would like to continue to engage the students in these skills throughout the year. Utilizing entertainment themes such as "Game of Thrones" or "Star Wars" will engage students to recall deductive reasoning skills they learned at the beginning of the school year. By exploring gathering evidence and using the processes of elimination the game playing lessons will reinforce the critical thinking.skills of reasoning which will prepare them for college and their careers. I will further be engaging the students by creating an inquiry based lesson to go along with playing the game in the classroom lab.
