Allow your students to learn about Archeology by completing an Archeology Dig!
This PDF includes images and notes on Archeology and Archeology Digs. The pages can be used in a variety of ways from direct instruction with analysis interaction to a centers activity if printed out and posted in stations to an archeological dig activity in which students work in pairs or small groups digging for cards and analyzing and recording the information on the provided handout.
Dig cards for investigation and discussion cards for projection cover the following topics:
Types of Archeology Digs
Reasons for Archeology Digs
Tools Used by Archeologists
The history of Archeology
The Importance of Archeology to the Study of History
I print and laminate the cards for the archeological dig activity and students LOVE this lesson! I use this pdf as a wrap up after my students do an "archeological dig" on the artifacts covered.
See preview for complete activity.
Student handouts are included as are wrap-up questions.
