Arizona Project Archaeology
We envision archaeological education as a path to civic engagement and stewardship of cultural resources on public lands.
The Arizona Site Steward Program Foundation is proud to support Arizona Project Archaeology, which provides a fully developed interdisciplinary science based Archaeological curriculum to 3rd - 5th grade history teachers. This comprehensive curriculum uses archaeological inquiry to foster understanding of past and present cultures; improve social studies and science education; and enhance citizenship education to help preserve our archaeological legacy.
What we can do for you
We provide services to educators, students and learners of all ages, and archaeologists in three ways: 1. High-quality curricular materials that model authentic archaeological inquiry. 2. Professional development for educators including classroom teachers, informal educators, and archaeologists. 3. Support for Project Archaeology educators through state and regional programs, conferences, new materials, and networking opportunities. How can we help you?
