Classroom Summary - Today we looked at how bones can be used in forensic science to tell us many different things. We watched an episode of ‘Bones’ that looked at the bones in feet to solve a murder. Students were given the option to opt out of the viewing if they did not want to watch because of the content of solving a murder. Students who did not participate were to outline the section in their textbooks on forensics and skeletal remains on page 121. Students were to read and then write a summary of the section. Students who watched the episode in class also had a guided worksheet that was due. A link to a description of the episode and a review from a forensic pathologist can be found here: http://www.poweredbyosteons.org/2011/04/bones-season-6-episode-17-review.html The episode can be found on Netflix and amazon.
