Archaeology in the Classroom!

Interested in using archaeology in your classroom? This Project Archaeology workshop is a supplementary science and social studies curriculum unit designed to familiarize educators in grades 3 through 5 (also easily adaptable for secondary subjects) with archaeology resources for the classroom that can enhance learning opportunities in math, science, art, and social studies. Archaeology is an engaging way for students to tangibly connect to the past. Archaeology is interdisciplinary and uses scientific and historical inquiry to foster cultural understanding. Teachers and students can be a part of the discovery and defense of our cultural heritage by learning how archaeologists study the past and then apply their knowledge to uncover a real archaeological site! Explore a slave cabin, farm house, colonial home, and several Native American shelters right from your classroom!

The workshop will take place at the Museum of the Great Plains on November 6-7.
