Become a Young Archaeologist
|Grades||1 – 4|
|Activity Time||20 minutes or more|
Want to visit a museum without leaving your computer? Virtually dig for famous historical artifacts from around the world found in the British Museum. Make predictions about the artifacts, dig, and once you make your discovery, learn more about the objects.
By investigating online museum sites, children learn to look closely and think like archaeologists. Children learn to make predictions and imagine the historical artifacts. Children can then read about the objects; discuss what they found, and research objects of interest.
