Section 1- Solving the crime The most difficult task To gather evidences to solve the crime Explanation Thus, we are required to go through quite a number of ‘hands on’ experiments to attain them. After gathering more evidences, we are still supposed to analyse the information and come to the conclusion of the identity of the murderer. As group members are not experienced, we may not obtain accurate results and this will affect the solving of the crime.
Section 1- Solving the crime The easiest and most interesting task To gather evidences through questioning Explanation Flaws in the statements & information allows us to make deductions easily. No complicated procedures is required as we just need to ask suspects questions. We are supposed to use our creativity to decide questions that will provide us key ideas to the identity of the murderer.

Section 4- Reflections <ul><li>This Crime Scene Investigation course has provided us with knowledge about forensic science , and explains the process of crime investigating in detail. In this course, we play the role of forensic scientists, gathering evidence, doing experiments in laboratories, questioning the characters involved in the crime, and each activity gets us closer to solving the crime and finding out the murderer. </li></ul>
Section 4- Reflections <ul><li>As a group, what we enjoy most of the course is the part where we question the suspects. Every member of the course has questions to ask, and through these questions, we gather more information. We can also see Mr Bill role playing the different characters, which is sometimes humorous. Evidence and researching alone would not get us close to solving the case without questioning the suspects. </li></ul>
Section 4- Reflections <ul><li>In daily lives, we would not get the chance to question suspects in crime scene investigation, and this valuable opportunity gives us the chance to do so. It stimulates creative and critical thinking , which also benefits us in our everyday lives. </li></ul>
