The Truman Library and Jackson County Parks + Rec invite you to take an exciting trip back in time! Practice the basics of scientific inquiry using archaeological data. Learn how archaeologists investigate and interpret past cultures and peoples. Finally, learn how to incorporate all of this into your classrooms or other settings. Archaeology is an excellent tool for engaging youth in science education.
Participants will receive full instruction in archaeological science for the classroom and complete curriculum guide and materials.
During this workshop, participants will discover the past through evidence from a mid-20th century archaeological site at Davis Bottom, a multi-racial, urban, working-class neighborhood. In this investigation, students will use geography, history, and archaeology to learn about a Kentucky shotgun house and the people who lived in it.
The workshop will also participate in activities at the Truman Library and engage in archaeological fieldwork (optional) at the Atkins-Johnson Farm and Museum.
Two graduate credits are also available from Lindenwood University. Tuition is $75 per hour.
