K–12 students are natural archaeologists: curious about the world around them and open to new exploration. This virtual workshop will provide K–12 social studies, art or history teachers with tools to engage their students in the study of archaeology. From cookie excavations to analyzing trash, there are a myriad of projects our teacher panel will share. Expect to walk away with clarity of materials, grade appropriate activities and how it all ties in to the study of the ancient world.
