Lesson Plans Aligned to State Standards

The SCAPOD co-founders began creating cultural heritage and archaeology lesson plans before the establishment of the nonprofit in 2010. Each lesson plan aligns with South Carolina teaching standards. While some lessons are SCAPOD originals, others are adapted for the South Carolina classroom from previously developed lesson plans. All of these adapted lesson plans contain a reference to their source.

We would like to hear from educators who use these lesson plans. Your feedback is important to us! After using a SCAPOD lesson plan in your class, please take a survey to let us know your thoughts.

We are always looking for new and innovative lesson plans to add to the SCAPOD collection. If you have created archaeology or cultural heritage lesson plans that you would like to share, or want information on customizing lesson plans to fit your classroom needs, please contact SCAPOD. If you would like to support the development of new SCAPOD lesson plans please donate today!
