Summary of clip: This clip is a connection of a few clips where the FBI is attempting to determine the indentity of an unknown drug lord. They use fingerprints from glasses to search through several databases until a match is found.

Connection of flickclip to the concept: Fingerprints are unique to each person. This clip shows how it can be used to identify a person.
Suggestions to teachers:

Students can explore why mammals even have fingerprints and what makes them unique.

What do people look for when looking at fingerprints?

This can also be used to introduce Genetics and more complex methods of identifying people.

This can also be used in a project-based assignment where students can fingerprint each other to create a classroom database. That datebase can then be used to determine where everyone in the class was during a mock incident. This can be as humorous as you wish to make. A "whodunit" scenario.
