In this lesson, students will receive a worksheet where they will need to look around the room to find an object that would make a good "artifact" for an archaeologist in the future to discover. They will need to imagine what an archaeologist in the future would guess the object would be used for. In this way, students are both observing the object and hypothesizing possible uses.
