In last week’s lesson, the children learnt that fingerprints are NOT inherited from their parents. Could children who weren’t in, watch the video and write a short paragraph explaining how and when they are formed. All children could then investigate the fingerprints in their family. They could ask relatives to let them know which type they have. They could record their own fingerprints in their book.

How to take a fingerprint.

Draw on an area of paper with a pencil until it is quite dark.

Rub the finger you want to print over the dark pencil area.

Take a piece of sticky tape and place it over your finger and carefully lift off the print.

Stick the sticky tape into your book.

Children could create a table in their homework books to show their results:

Fingerprint type

Amount of people







Which is the most common type of fingerprint in their family?

Which is the least common?
