FBI Unit Study:Federal Reserve Bank Field Trip & Free Resources

Posted on February 9, 2013 at 7:55 AM

 After calling the branch office of the FBI, yep I do things like that, to see if I could plan a field trip there, I decided to take their advice and plan a field trip to the Federal Reserve Bank instead.

FBI Unit Study Experiment 3 (Building a Crystal Radio) + Lapbook Cover

Posted on January 25, 2013 at 7:10 AM

This next hands-on activity we did on our FBI unit study ended up involving the whole family or should I say attracted anybody of the male species. You have to love it when dad gets involved.

FBI Unit Study + Experiment 1 {Forensic Science-Fingerprints}

Posted on December 29, 2012 at 2:10 PM

I can't wait until the first of the year to start sharing with you what we have been doing on our newest unit study.

I knew when the boys decided to study about the FBI that it was going to be a longer study because of how many sub-topics we had listed. It has taken us more like 6 weeks instead of the normal 4 weeks pace that I try to stick with. Taking fingerprints was a pretty easy experiment to tie in with this study.
