This course and the curriculum guide, "Project Archaeology: Investigating Shelter" will give you everything you need to engage students in scientific methods and historic inquiry and show them how archaeology can help us solve problems today. Your students will apply archaeological concepts as they investigate an archaeological site using primary data sources such as maps, artifact illustrations, historic photographs, and oral histories. Back in the classroom, you can use the curriculum to fulfill many core requirements in social studies, science, mathematics, language arts, and art, while the students are discovering archaeology and history through engaging hands-on activities.
