What an expo trip has become
Grade 6 students from connect charter school try to solve a case about a stolen car in the community of Ogden.
They started going through the case in early November in their classroom. They were giving the case by the police Interpretive centre. Each kid has a detective notebook to write down information about the case. The students learn about footwear impressions and even fingerprint types. On November 16th, the kids headed down to the police interpretive centre. Once there, they were split into three groups. Each group had their own guide to lead them through. The three groups were named K9, Hawks, and Tactical.
Once there, the grade six students would look at a mystery fibre. The students also participated in fun activities like a scavenger hunt. When they were doing a scavenger hunt they had to solve things like what kinds of dogs are in the K-9 unit. The kids were even lucky enough to go inside a real police car! They got to see a lot of simulators while they were their like the hawks helicopter and riot officer uniform. one of the main reasons the students came there is to solve the case.
They looked at who's shoe prints were at the scene of the crime and even who's fingerprints were there. These young students have learned about drug Safety and what healthy and unhealthy relationships are through a presentation. They had a lot of fun learning about safety and common sense.
They even had a fake botfly larva container that you could stick your fingers in and feel them. Botflies are small wormlike creatures that burrow into dead body's. They also are used as fishing bait.
Kiera Gibson thinks it helped the s figure out the case more. Kiera also likes how we focused on other topics. Kiera thinks this field trip is a 9/10 because we got to look a lot of fun things.
