2018 Archaeology in the Classroom Application

Archaeology in the Classroom is designed to bring interactive archaeology programs to students of all ages. The study of archaeology can be used as a pathway to teach students about science, math, social studies, literature, and our shared cultural heritage. An Archaeology in the Classroom program includes a brief overview of what archaeologists do, what archaeology is, and hands-on activities to reinforce archaeological concepts. The Archaeology in the Classroom experience can be custom tailored to each class to deliver a presentation that meets your students’ needs and interests.

Free Archaeology in the Classroom programs for the Spring 2018 semester have been funded in part by both Midlands Gives 2017 and SC Humanities. Midlands Gives is a 24-hour online giving event that brings the region together as one community, raising money and awareness for local nonprofits in 11 Midlands counties. South Carolina Humanities is a state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The mission of South Carolina Humanities is to enrich the cultural and intellectual lives of all South Carolinians. This not-for-profit organization presents and/or supports literary initiatives, lectures, exhibits, festivals, publications, oral history projects, videos and other humanities-based experiences that reach more than 250,000 citizens annually. South Carolina Humanities receives funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities as well as corporate, foundation and individual donors. It is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors comprised of community leaders from throughout the state.
