Program Description

Someone has broken into the City Analyst’s Laboratory and it is up to your class to catch the culprit! Students must evaluate the crime scene and study the evidence to make an arrest!

The Break & Enter program is aimed at students grades 4-6 (10-13 years of age). Students are given preliminary information regarding a Break & Enter incident. The goals of the activity are two-fold; students must provide an explanation of events and a motive for the Break & Enter.
