Bring archaeology into your classrooms! Explore how archaeologists investigate and interpret past cultures and peoples. Learn the basics of scientific inquiry using archaeological data and how to incorporate hands-on archaeological problem solving activities into classroom settings. Archaeology is a fascinating tool to engage youth in science education.
Participants will discover the past by using data from actual excavations at a historic slave cabin at
Thomas Jefferson’s Poplar Forest. Since similar sites are found in Missouri, this study is an appropriate case to engage students in history, scientific research methods, and archaeological site stewardship. Participants receive instruction in archaeological science for the classroom and a complete curriculum guide.
The workshop includes optional field trips to Jefferson Landing State Historic Site, Missouri State Parks’ archaeological collections facility, and the University of Missouri’s Museum of Anthropology.
Teachers interested in becoming a Project Archaeology facilitator (enabling you to hold teacher training workshops) are encouraged to register for facilitator training. One additional hour of training per day is required; there is no additional cost.
To register, contact Tiffany Patterson, Director, Missouri State Museum (573-522-6946) firstname.lastname@example.org
Optional: 1 graduate credit hour can be earned through Lindenwood University. Tuition is $75 per hour.
