Classroom Archaeology: An Archaeology Activity Guide for Teachers. Third Edition.
Hawkins, Nancy W.
This guide describes archaeology activities appropriate for middle school students, but some activities can be used in intermediate and primary grades or high school and college classes. The activities range in length from less than one hour to 15 hours. A sequence of activities may be used together as a unit on archaeology, or individual activities may be used alone. The activities generally are arranged in the guide in order of increasing complexity. The guide is divided into five parts: (1) "Resources"; (2) "Short Activities"; (3) "Games"; (4) "Record a Site"; and (5) "Analyze a Site." (EH)
