Class Experience

Students will learn about the field of archaeology through hands-on activities and discussions with the teacher and their peers.  They will practice fine motor skills, measuring, drawing, reasoning, and organization.
I have a degree in anthropology!  I have been working on archaeological sites since I was 16 years old and have dug on 3 continents.  My first training emphasized public archaeology, so teaching others about it is incredibly important to me.  I also work in museums as a public educator!  I love showing kids the ropes and seeing them learn with their hands!
Students should complete the activities in the Nearpod lesson each week.
This class requires prep ahead of time on the parents' part. PLEASE do not enroll your child if this can't be done, they will not have much to do otherwise. Instructions for the dig box and trash day will be provided in the welcome message. REQUIRED MATERIALS: 1. Small box/bin of any kind at least the size of a laptop 2. Spoon 3. Paintbrush 4. Artifacts (all can be from things already in your home) 5. Markers 6. Pencils 7. Surface to write on 8. Print outs from the classroom (2) 9. Toothbrush 10. Bowl with water 11. Place to dry artifacts 12. Measuring tool 13. Dirt 14. Place where students can get a little messy. 15. Bag of actual trash from your home
No live meetings, and no time outside of class.
You will need to prepare a dig box for your student.  Archaeologists do not study dinosaurs or fossils, and I cannot provide any expertise in that area.  Fossil lovers are absolutely welcome and dig boxes can have them as well!  Just be advised I will not be able to discuss dinosaurs with any more experience than a layperson.

You will also need to provide your student with items from the trash.  Please ensure these are safe for them to handle and be sure to have them wash their hands afterward.
