General Science: Let your fingers do the talking
This week the kids learned about fingerprints, you know...dactyloscopy. They used graphite from their pencils and transparent tape to record each of their fingerprints. Then we looked at some common patterns and used these to classify them. Finally the kids produced a single "mystery" print which their partners were challenged to identify using the database of labeled fingerprints.
