Mystery Powders – Who Done It?
Older children (grades 5 – 8) are excited about becoming forensic scientists as they try to figure out who stole the youth group’s money from the Temple. Incriminating evidence was left behind in the form of a white powder. After researching local white powder manufacturers we found three companies: The Ace Company, Bug Company and Eek Company. So who stole the money? Could it be Vergil Vermin, Ronald Rat or Thelma Thief?
During science class, which takes place during Investigations in the afternoon on Wednesdays, students working in small groups were given samples of powder from each company. They observed the powder and then added liquids Bop, Tap and Zip and observed and took meticulous notes of the reaction.
Once they have tested the three powders they will be given a sample of the powder (the evidence) found at the scene of the crime. By referring to their notes and observations we hope they can prove without a shadow of doubt, the identity of the culprit. Then a warrant for the arrest of Vergil, Ronald or Thelma can be issued! Stay tuned!
