Our Past: A Hands-On Archeological Simulation
This grant provides the materials to build a permanent archeological dig structure at Overlook Middle School. Understanding the stratification of soil levels, identifying fossils, stone materials and completing lab report documentation will be skills taught and used with the site. It allows students to “get their hands dirty” and fully experience the process, patience level and excitement in discovering fossils and artifacts to learn about their past. It also serves as a way to make the material learned in class become real to them as they become archeologists.
