On December 17, 2013, the fifth and sixth grade classes were shocked to discover that someone had swiped the popsicle-stick bridge from the middle school science classroom.
The fifth and sixth grade students grabbed their C.S.I badges and split into groups in search of the missing bridge.
Eventually, the students found the bridge hidden in the library, but they still had to figure out who took the bridge using reasoning and finger printing.
The crime was solved on January 10 when they discovered that senior Landon Rozell was the culprit.
Middle school science teacher Mrs. Dawn Simons said they started the unit in her Math Explore classes as a way to integrate science, technology, engineering, math, and communication arts.
Sixth grader Jacob Stevens said, “I liked doing the C.S.I unit because we got to pretend we were real crime scene investigators.”
Senior Landon Rozell commented, “I’d have gotten away with it too, if it hadn’t been for those meddling kids!”
