Join us for an exciting trip back in time to investigate archaeology!

You will use this virtual workshop to practice the basics of scientific inquiry (observation, inference, evidence, and classification) using authentic archaeological data. You will learn first hand how to help your students apply archaeological concepts as they investigate a shelter using primary data sources such as maps, artifact illustrations, historic photographs and oral histories. By using this curriculum you will fulfill many Common Core State Standards requirements in social studies, English Language Arts, and math (CCSS alignments). Your students discover archaeology and history through engaging hands-on activities.

Participating teachers will receive:

  • Convenient online access to professional development
  • 2 graduate credits
  • Inquiry-based instruction and lessons
  • Full instruction in archaeological science for the classroom
  • The award-winning curriculum guide, Project Archaeology: Investigating Shelter, endorsed by the National Council for the Social Studies
  • Access to a database of over 16 regional shelter investigations
  • Instructions for assembling your own classroom materials during the course
