Science- Engaging your students - Miss Hastler's Chromatography CSI lesson with year 7
"In my class students are studying separation techniques, and in this particular lesson I set out a crime scene (drawing around Mr Campbell on my floor as my dead body). The students were tasked with carrying out chromatography, using the letter dropped at the crime scene (conveniently!) to work out who the murderer was.
Thankfully, all the students managed to correctly identify the killer, and file a scientific report explaining how they were absolutely certain who the killer was using detailed explanations of the process of chromatography!"
