We thought it would be fun to learn a bit more about what the police do. One of these things is taking fingerprints at crime scenes. They do it to identify the culprit of a crime.
We read a journal story all about the art of fingerprinting and we listened to the online audio to make sure we understood all the technical language. We looked at pictures of whorls, loops and arch patterns. We wanted to find out if our fingerprints are rare or common. We found that loops are fairly common. We also found out that your fingerprints are set even before you are born and they do not change.
