‘Olas Kii Pithouse Teacher Workshop

June 4 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

New Investshelter&olaskiipithouse Teacher Workshop R2

Project Archaeology Investigating Shelter - National Rural STEM Learning Summit

Did you study archaeology in elementary, middle, or high school? Probably not. But why not? Archaeology is a science that uses observation and data tools to understand a bigger system. Students can apply their knowledge of archaeology to better understand how to use data in learning about diverse cultures and solving contemporary problems in preservation. Most K-12 educators do not have a background in archaeology and schools do not provide curriculum and materials to teach the subject.

Here is your chance to bring the Science of Archaeology into your classrooms. Discover the past through evidence from an archaeological site in Arizona! This six-hour workshop will demonstrate how investigating an archaeological dig of a Native American pithouse, using the tools of scientific inquiry, helps students understand past people and cultures. Explore ways to engage students through hands-on inquiry-based learning using a curriculum that aligns with Arizona State Standards. Transform your classroom into a community of student archaeologists who ask questions, make observations, and support their inferences with evidence, analyze primary sources, relate culture to their own lives, and passionately share what they learn in a variety of ways.
