My daughter finds all the CSI type shows fascinating, so I had signed my DD (12 yo) to attend a CSI class at the local CC this summer. Unfortunately, due to low interest, the class was cancelled. My daughter was pretty upset, so to soften that, I suggested we run our own CSI class at home.
So, I'd like to see if anyone has some recommendations for the following things:
A book that helps run the CSI case(s). I have found two that seem interesting: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1593633122/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER
Books on chemistry experiments (general, and/or that would be CSI related)
Books on entomology (general and/or that would be CSI related)
A microscope recommendation (not too spendy; can be used for slides as well as being able to look at bugs.)
Supplies to support, like a CSI field kit, or a list of necessary items to pull off the experiments/mystery.
TIA for any help you can give me!
The book in your first link is what we are planning on trying this year. My 12 yr old is also interested in this stuff.
