Jackson County Parks + Rec and the Truman Library 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 curriculumguide and materials.
During this workshop, participants will investigate an historic 1869 farmstead. Using data from an actual excavation at the farmstead, students will learn how archaeologists study the past. Studies of such
farmsteads and farm residences are appropriate in Missouri since many similar sites are found throughout the state. The workshop will also participate in activities at the Truman Library and engage in archaeological fieldwork (optional) at the Lone JackBattlefield Museum.
***Optional: up to 2 graduate credit hours can be taken from Lindenwood University. Tuition is $60 per hour.***
