Shade, Richard A.
Gifted Child Today (GCT), v13 n3 p10-12 May-Jun 1990
This article outlines an eight-week program exploring archaeology in the elementary school classroom. "Relics" from the author's grandmother's attic and contemporary "prepared" garbage bags were studied for insight into the past and processes involved in archeological digs. Famous digs were studied, experts visited the class, and games simulated archeological research. (PB)
