Engaging the community to promote and protect our heritage.
Learn first-hand how to help your students practice the basics of inquiry-based learning through crosscurricular lessons that teach archaeology and cultural understanding. Archaeology is an excellent tool for cross-curricular education. Subjects covered in the workshops will include science, mathematics, social studies, history, language arts, geography, and the arts.
Participants will receive full instruction in archaeological science for the classroom and the award-winning curriculum guide Project Archaeology: Investigating Shelter for grades 3 – 5 or Project Archaeology: Investigating Nutrition for grade 6. All K-12 educators are encouraged to apply. Many concepts within each curriculum can be taught across all grade levels. Educators employed in SC public school districts may be eligible to receive professional development credit for attending a Project Archaeology workshop. Please contact your district’s coordinator for pre-approval of credit.
Workshops will take place from 8:30am – 5pm at the Parker Annex Archaeology Center. Lunch will be provided for free.
