Texas Archeology in the Classroom: A Unit for Teachers


Part I includes background information on archeology, prehistory/Native Americans, and historic sites. Each of these three topics is treated as if the text were included in a self-contained. To this more useful for different grade levels, this part may be used (1) as background information for the teacher; or (2) as material that can be photocopied and distributed to students. At the end of Part I a Glossary is provided. The Glossary includes all words that appear in boldface in the text and will allow both students and teachers easy review of these sometimes complex concepts as they are reused throughout this unit—and especially as they occur in the classroom activities. Part II consists of classroom activities. Most of these activities will be more meaningful if general background information is provided from Part I. However, most of them can be used with only the information provided in the activity guide itself. Part III includes resources for teachers who wish to use additional materials and information that are not included in this booklet. Part IV consists of additional items that can be photocopied and used as supplemental handouts for students.
