Prize for the school with the most entries:
For the school with the most entries, we will work with the principal to set up a half-day workshop for the faculty led by a Project Archaeology Master Teacher. The workshop will teach two Enduring Understandings: Archaeology is a systematic way to learn about the past and stewardship of archaeological sites and artifacts is everyone’s responsibility.
Teachers will be able to answer the essential questions:
- How do archaeologists study the past?
- How can investigating shelters help us understand people and cultures?
- How can we use what we learn about shelter in the present and the future?
Be confident and prepared to implement Common Core State Standards through the engaging, multidisciplinary study of archaeology.
The students will love it too!
