One thing I wanted to do with our school this year is to have more fun. One area it is easier to have fun while learning is science. A couple of weeks ago (yes, I’m that far behind), we learned about the uniqueness of fingerprints.
First, I showed the boys pictures of fingerprints on the internet. We discussed how fingerprints are used to identify people and talked about how there are three different types of fingerprints.
Next, using black ink, we fingerprinted everyone in the family, even Daddy Cameron. I think everyone had a whorl except Thing 2, who only had arches, if I remember correctly.
The boys thought it was pretty cool to see what their fingerprints looked like. I thought it was interesting to see how the boys’ fingerprints were so different, especially since they have the same parents.
Have you ever done any fingerprint studies?
