Students must analyze five pieces of evidence to eliminate nine of ten suspects. Ideal as an end of topic activity; students need to peform the common processes but also interpret their results in a different context. I usually have students working in pairs and run this over an hour session with ten minutes at the end to feedback their conclusions. PowerPoint to support in delivery - with the answers on at the end. Suspects are celebrities; although the students love it if you put pictures of them or staff on!
