-text about artifacts as primary sources
-artifact observation and recording sheet
After learning about artifacts being a primary source in your social studies curriculum (we use McGraw Hill) or from reading the included text piece, students are ready to become archaeologist.
They will explore one of your collected ‘artifacts,’ record information and details about it, and make a guess for the item’s use on their recording sheet.
You will need to do a little digging and collecting to find some items to use as artifacts. Keep an eye out at garage sales, search your kitchen drawers, sewing box, garage, yard barn, craft room, tool box, etc.
