Archaeology for Kids: Uncovering the Mysteries of Our Past--25 Activities.
Panchyk, Richard
This book provides 25 activities giving children hands-on archeological experience, teaches how archaeologists work, and shows what they have discovered from digging up prehistoric bones between the time when dinosaurs roamed the earth to the uncovering of modern artifacts at a contemporary office building. Ancient civilizations come to life as children see how archaeology uncovers the mysteries of the past. It allows children to read about many ancient civilizations like the Babylonian, the Shang Dynasty, and the Sumerians. Students discover how the great Egyptian pyramids were built and how the lost city of Troy was finally found. (Contains sidebars, maps, photographs, illustrations, a glossary of terms, a detailed timeline, and a related Web sites section.) (BT)
