Archaeology for Kids Mini-Workshop

April 6, 2014 8:00 am – noon

The Missouri Archaeological Society will sponsor a workshop for people interested in teaching archaeology to children, both within a school setting and also in parks, libraries, Scout groups, field trips, and environmental education locations. This will be a four hour program that will focus on activities that can be used with groups of students in short blocks of time. Skills of an archaeologist, such as observation, inference, analysis, and classification can be taught through engaging, participatory activities. Materials will be used from Investigating Shelter and Intrigue of the Past. The cost of the workshop is $15.00. To register, contact Lisa Haney at LHaney@missouristate.edu
