Introduction This web quest was created to help you learn more about our STEM exploration of archaeology. You will learn what archaeology is and will create a product to share what you have learned. You will be asked to journal your thoughts as you research the topic of archaeology.
Task 1 Research archaeology using the following websites. Record in your archaeology journal the answers to the following questions. – What is archaeology? – Create a t-chart or venn diagram that compares and contrasts archaeology and anthropology. – What do archaeologists learn from digs? – How do archaeologists know whether humps and bumps on the earth’s surface are possible areas to excavate further? – Where all does archaeology take place? (Really think about this!)
