Looking for an exciting, authentic way to meet science, math, social studies, and language arts standards in the classroom?  We have your answer!  FPAN Northeast is offering two teacher workshops this summer using inquiry-based archaeology lessons for elementary and middle school students. 

Both workshops are free, but registration is first come, first serve--so if you're interested, contact Amber soon!

First up, we offer Project Archaeology: Investigating Shelter, a curriculum for grades 3-5 that teaches scientific principles such as observation, inference, classification and context before applying them to understand excavations at Kingsley Plantation.

Then we move on to Timucuan Technology, our brand new biotechnology lessons geared towards grades 6-8.  These lessons explore the ways that Timucuan people exploited the resources around them to meet basic needs.  They involve some intensive hands-on models and experiments as a way of exploring and understanding the past.

Contact Amber with any questions or to get a registration form for either workshop.
