Download Students will use the medium of metallic sharpie and pen, reminiscent of the forensic powder, to create narratives, following the shape, pattern, and design of a fingerprint. Students will also make aesthetic inferences regarding problem-­‐solving and appropriate arrangement of the narrative. (134 KB)
