A Block Introduction to Law 9/10 - Today, you'll look at crime scene investigation. You'll start with the basic stages of a search, documenting evidence, and examples of what is included in a crime scene investigator's toolkit.  I will show you an episode of "I Detective" (Identity Unknown). On the video, you'll be presented with a crime scene and at a point will be posed with a multiple choice question to answer. I'll pause the episode and you will be required to choose an answer (they'll give you three options). We'll see how good of a crime scene detective you really are. From FOXCrime:

Armchair detectives and forensic science junkies get the opportunity to solve real cases. I, Detective is a television series that combines the elements of documentary, murder mystery and quiz shows. Each half-hour show gives viewers the opportunity to follow clues, find evidence and learn how this information is used to solve some of the most intriguing investigations using the same evidence, suspects, motives and witness statements that actual investigators encounter in their quest to solve the crime.

B Block Social Studies 10 - Today with Mr. Elliott We will finish working on "The Canadas 1815: the five themes of Geography". This worksheet sets the scene for the events leading up to confederation and the birth of Canada by examining some of the physical and social characteristics of Upper and Lower Canada in the early nineteenth century.

Just a reminder this is the last day of class time to work on these!
