This five-day program starts on Monday, July 31 evening and ends on Friday, August 4 morning at the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.
Engage your students to think like archaeologists as they apply the tools of scientific inquiry to the investigation of nutrition. Get ideas for hands-on classroom activities that will guide students to trace the shift from hunting and gathering to the development of agriculture in the ancient world. Explore the connection of food diversity and human health.
This program includes a field trip to the Field Museum, an interactive food demonstration, presentations by Oriental Institute scholars, and gallery activities. Upon completion of the program, participants will be certified to teach all Project Archaeology curricula to their peers through workshops, institutes, and job-embedded mentoring.
