Forensic Lesson at Davidson

Forensic Lesson at Davidson

Mrs. Smith’s Forensic Science class at Davidson High School took part in a unique lesson where students created a storyline regarding the reason for arson in a structure. Once they created their storyline, students had to build a two-story structure (composed of popsicle sticks and wood glue) that contained at least three windows, a door, and a roof. Norwich Township Fire Department then came in to discuss the dangers of arson and accidental fires with the class. Fire Investigator Darryl Miller ignited the structures the students built based on each group’s storyline. The next period after the burn, students used our knowledge of arson vocabulary and burn patterns to analyze and discern where the fires started in each structure.
