Using a shoe print collected at the crime scene, your students will be able to determine critical information about the criminal! Students will analyze and compare shoe castings.
Students will perform a lab to compare height with shoe size and stride length.
After taking castings of their own footprints, students will use both a casting of the evidence shoe print and a photograph of an additional shoe print found at the scene of the crime to determine individual characteristics about the shoeprints of a suspect or suspects.
As in all Lyle and Louise modules, this kit is geared to high school and undergraduate courses and is matched to National Science Education Standards.
