Week 1: Those Crafty Hohokam
Week 2: Stone-Age Survival Kit
Week 3: Preserving the Past: Archaeology for Kids
Archaeologist, Gina Gage had the kids excavating, digging and cleaning artifacts, and just learning about history from what is buried by years and years of sand. The kids were very interested in archaeology and how much hard work had to be done in order for history to be told and revealed. Many theories had the kid’s minds wandering how people once lived back in time. Even with the hot temperatures outside, they enjoyed the excavation the most.
The summer program came to an end and had them already planning to come back next summer. When it was time for parents to pick up their children at noon they did not want to go. All the fun they were having during these past weeks will have them sharing their experiences with others.
