DESCRIPTION

Learn With Me Day is a monthly on-site program (aligned with VA SOLs) good for homeschool or students who are virtual learning in grade levels K-6.
This month’s topic is “I Dig George” and location is George Washington’s Ferry Farm. Participants will engage with the archaeology process and learn the importance of the process to historical research. Students will dig at a simulated archaeological site. They will also learn about gridding the dig site, sifting for artifacts, and then washing, identifying, and mending artifacts. Students will be challenged to think critically about artifacts they uncover during their dig and will leave with a new-found knowledge of what can be discovered under the ground.
