Product Description
This is an activity that allows students to learn about each other while broadening their understanding of how archaeologists use artifacts to uncover clues about early human life.

Students are asked to fill a brown paper bag with 3-5 items from home that will give the class clues about their lives. They bring in the filled paper bag the next day, and their classmates (acting as archaeologists) sort through the "artifacts" to draw conclusions about their life. The students can also guess who the bags belong to.

This is a great beginning of the year activity, but it can also be used while studying archaeology.
