Dig That Site: Exploring Archaeology, History, and Civilization on the Internet.
Garfield, Gary M.; McDonough, Suzanne
This book combines the excitement of the Internet with conventional learning resources to explore early civilizations and cultures. This approach encourages independent student research, problem solving, and decision making while bringing together the fascination of archaeology with the Internet and hands-on learning activities. Students learn the geography, history, art, and culture of the civilizations being explored. The exploration sites are listed by continent and a complete Internet address is given for each. Four introductory lessons and explorations in Asia, Europe, Africa, North America, South America, Australia and the Pacific, and Antarctica are included. Each exploration includes two hands-on activities related to aspects of the civilization being studied. Appendices contain information related to site journals, related organizations and resources, and the site index. (DDR)
