Imagine being on an archeological dig and discovering the rich cultural history of Native Americans. Kids will learn to discern the lifestyles of pre-industrial cultures and compare them to our own society. Our exclusive Archaeology Adventure Activity Kit recreates this incredible experience anytime and anywhere!

Set up a simulated dig site complete with fragmented pottery that must be pieced together, beads, arrowheads, shells and even a bunch of animal bones (leading to discussions about dietary habits). We even include a professional-quality screen for sifting out key findings. Then, participants will have the opportunity to create their own necklace with a real arrowhead and beads.

Ages 4 and up.

Unit Goals and Concepts:

  • Present information about early cultures.
  • Simulate archaeological work (and fun!).
  • Create a necklace with an arrowhead like the Native Americans had.
  • Compare pre-industrial cultures to modern society.
  • Encourage cooperation and imaginative, interactive activity.

Materials Included:

  • Arrowheads to be used in the "dig" and then for making necklaces.
  • Beads, shells, fragmented pottery, and replica animal bones to be used in the "dig."
  • A sturdy and durable screen for sorting out findings.
  • Our exclusive instructor's activity guide that makes planning the project easy and delivers loads of fun ideas for activities, games and relevant projects.
  • The only materials you supply are scissors, sorting boxes, and digging tools.

For groups larger than 25, simply order extra arrowheads, beads, shells or digging screens (see "Accessories" below).
