Archaeology in the Classroom @ Fort Osage National Historic Landmark
Jul 22 – Jul 26 all-day

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.

In this investigation students will use geography, history, and archaeology to learn about a wickiup and the Meskwaki (Sac and Fox) people. Examine historic photographs, artifacts, and maps of the wickiup located in Wisconsin. Students meet a Meskwaki tribal member, through reading a biography and oral histories. Then they “uncover” a real archaeological site, classify artifacts, and infer how the geographic area of Wisconsin shaped the wickiup.
Participants in this workshop will also engage in archaeological fieldwork (optional) at Fort Osage National Historic Landmark.

Optional: up to 2 graduate credit hours can be taken from Lindenwood University. Tuition is $75 per hour.
