Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Humpty Dumpty, Finding Nemo, Rockabye baby, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, each have a common theme: crime.

Forensic science students were assigned a fairytale and were told to build a replica of the crime scene in the story using supplies the students provided.

“I got Alice in Wonderland, and I am planning to make it really realistic and use paper mache,” senior Cassidy Prado said.“I picked Toy Story II. I feel like this project is different from others because we get to be really creative,” senior Josh Beauchamp said.

Students were given a week of class time to work on this major grade project.  

“I signed up for Finding Nemo, and we’re using goldfish,” senior Sarah Karacic said.

We’re doing Bambi. In the middle of the meadow is where the crime scene and his mom will be.”

— Ezekiel, senior

Karacic used a shoe box and covered it in blue construction paper. Then she got rocks and surrounded them at the bottom with the tan colored construction paper representing sand, and glued goldfish to the top. Students weren’t provided any materials for this project, only given instructions, a rubric, and a chrome book; students were also required to type a “Forensic Style” of their fairy tale in 800 words or less.”The crime in Nemo was him being kidnapped,” Karacic said.

“We’re doing Bambi. In the middle of the meadow is where the crime scene and his mom will be,” senior Ezekiel Martinez said.

Students read in class the Jack and Jill forensics version and were told to recreate it to their own fairytale.

“This is one of my favorites, but we do another one in the spring I really like to,” Forensics Teacher Brittany Miller said.  

It is the first major grade of the second nine weeks, and it gives them a chance to show their creative side through art, and writing,

“I really enjoy seeing all the creativity and ideas my students come up with,” Miller said.

Students finished the project with a gallery walk around the room admiring their classmates’ projects Oct. 24.
