Learn With Me Day is an on-site program (aligned with VA SOLs) for students who are virtually learning and for homeschool students. All students must be in grades K-6. 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.
Reservations: Registration required. $10 per student; $5.00 per adult. Time blocks will restrict group size; there will be several time blocks available. (9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m., 11 a.m. – 12 p.m., 1 p.m. – 2 p.m., 2:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.)
Length of Program: 60 minutes
