The New York State Museum is pleased to offer a one-day teacher workshop, “Archaeology in the Classroom.”
Archaeology is a science that reaches many disciplines, making it particularly useful for teaching other subjects, including the natural sciences, history, math, language arts, geography, social sciences, and the arts.
This workshop provides educators with classroom lessons, activities, and projects designed to expose students to the excitement of archaeology and that are either stand-alone or connect to other curricula. Information about the advantages of object-based learning, using a museum as an educational resource, and applications to the State Learning Standards will also be presented. The workshop is open to all teachers, although content is particularly geared toward teachers of grades 2–8.
This program is free, and includes all lectures, behind-the-scenes tours, visual materials, and resources for classroom application.
