In the Bolivar-Richburg Central School district, a group of bright and curious third-grade students were afforded a unique and immersive learning experience. With the invaluable guidance of local police department officers, the students were introduced to the basics of crime scene investigation. This involved hands-on training that equipped them with essential skills to investigate a challenging case where their principal, Mrs. Duke, had gone missing.
Throughout the investigation, the students were presented with various obstacles that put their critical thinking, problem-solving, and physical abilities to the test. They were tasked with making inferences, assessing the reasonableness of their answers, honing their writing skills, reading fluency, mastering multiplication fluency, finding the area of a rectangle, and collaborating effectively with their peers.
This immersive experience provided them with invaluable skills that they will carry with them for years to come.
