Fun Fingerprinting Activity

Here's a fun activity that could be used in any type of science class. Even a substitute could tuck this in their bag and pull it out for a good active engaging hour of fun and learning!

I've done a version of this activity many times over the years. This one is based on a lesson from the University of Michigan. I've adapted it and turned it into a one page (front-back) activity that uses the skills of observation and classification.

All you need are graphite pencils, clear tape, and 3 x 5 cards.
