Evidence and Investigation

Today was a busy day in Science. We completed our analysis of different fabrics by testing how they burn.  We looked at nylon, cotton cloth, denim, rayon, and felt.

Does it burn or melt?

This afternoon we began our study of tracking.  We discovered that a crime had occurred at a local bank.  Upon arrival, the police were able to identify a shoe print in the wet soil next to it.  The direction of the track led police to believe that the criminal was hiding out on a local patio drinking coffee with other citizens.  

Upon taking a copy of the shoe prints of the people on location, we may be able to link one of the coffee drinkers with the print next to the bank.  This evidence may lead us to establishing a viable suspect!
