This tool, reviewed by Science NetLinks, is a science mystery story about food poisoning in which students assume the role of a medical investigator on vacation in Idaho. Students must figure out who was responsible for transmitting a food borne pathogen and also figure out how it was transmitted. The story contains characters that students can interview in order to solve the case. Additional clues are provided if students do not select the right answers. Also, because students must choose both the person who transmitted the disease and the mode of transmission, it would be difficult to get the right answers without reading the story and fully considering the clues. While this page links to the overview for the Two Forks, Idaho tool for grades 6-8, you'll find additional links and benchmarks for grades K-12 by using the navigation tools at the top of the page.
