Since the dawn of time, people have always needed certain things to help them stay alive — easy access to water, sources of food, clothing and shelter. Geographical locations with these resources are likely to have been populated over and over again throughout time, which makes them logical places to look for relics and artifacts from previous habitation. The new DIGGING UP HISTORY program takes students back to the end of the Ice Age, when Paleo Indians were finding their way into North America over the land bridge.
Created for use at the 4th and 7th grade levels (aligned with science, social studies, math, and language arts TEKS), the Digging Up History Teacher’s Kit features our very own archaeologist, “Texas Smith” (a.k.a. Steve Baird) in a multi-segment DVD — with videos on Mammoths in Texas, Ice Age Paleo-Indians, the Gault Archaeologist Site, and How to Make a “Dig Box”. Also included is a copy of the student DIME NOVEL, Journey to the Land of the Mammoths.
