Getting To Know You
The first week of classes for students involved meeting new people and getting reacquainted with friends from last year. During social time students connected and played games or built structures. We also played a few name games.
MugshotsWith our theme being Operation Identification we started out with 'mug shots' of each of the kids. The 'smiley' mug shots are now posted in the classrooms. The serious ones will become a part of their TWIG Police Department file.

We watched two short videos on fingerprints and then we got to work making our own fingerprints. All of the students got the opportunity to take their fingerprints using graphite and clear tape--these turned out really well! The Wednesday morning and Thursday afternoon classes also took their fingerprints using ink pads (the other classes will get a chance to do this too.) In future classes we'll be analyzing our own prints and learning how to take latents.
