Students will have an opportunity to work with a former archaeologist while studying how archaeologists work. In a group of four, they will choose a Native American Culture to research. They will then design a scene from that culture by creating artifacts out of clay and other materials to bury as an archaeological site. They will then pass their site to another group while getting another group’s burial site. Using transect lines, they will systematically excavate the site, trying to determine the archaeological significance of the scene and excavated artifacts by using the class notes.
Fri. 3/27: CREATE A TERRARIUM ZOO
Students will either work with a partner or alone to study a zoo animal of their choice by researching their behavior, adaptations, and facts. With this knowledge, they will develop signs and posters about their animal.

Students will be able to take home their small terrarium habitat with a miniature zoo animal.
