The unit focuses on the task of an archaeologist. Archaeological sites, artifacts, and historical records are examined by students in order to develop an understanding of the work of an archaeologist, and to experience the archaeological process. The stories which artifacts can unfold are explored through the use of archaeological techniques. Each lesson includes objectives, notes to the teacher, materials, and activities. Enrichment suggestions and reproducible student activity and discussion sheets are provided for several lessons. Contains 14 references for further reading. (MM)
