Assessment and Participant Feedback of Sandpoint Archaeology Project Teaching Kits in Idaho Elementary Classrooms Thesis uri icon



  • Thesis (M.A., Anthropology) -- University of Idaho, 2016 | Teaching kits for elementary classrooms can be useful tools to facilitate an easy integration of archaeological education curriculum and materials into schools in order to explore regional history. How these kits impact students and teachers attitudes towards archaeology and how likely teachers are to use kits in the classroom are instrumental questions when considering these types of public learning tools. This thesis presents an assessment of an archaeology kit prototype that incorporates hands-on lessons modeled on data gathered from archaeological excavations conducted during the Sand Creek Byway mitigation project in Sandpoint, Idaho.
