Join Minnesota Project Archaeology at Bethany Lutheran College for a two-day workshop to learn how to bring archaeology into your classroom to study the past! You will receive the research-based curriculum guide, Project Archaeology: Investigating Shelter. This award-winning guide will help you take learning to a deeper level integrating English Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science. The guide includes performance-based assessments, incorporates the indigenous voice, and promotes cultural understanding. Students learn to analyze artifacts, primary documents, and oral histories related to authentic archaeological sites. Workshop participants will receive the supplementary guide, Investigating a Plains Tipi that takes students through an archaeological investigation of a tipi site to learn about the Crow tribe.
