Texas Archeology in the Classroom: A Unit for Teachers

Part I includes background information on archeology, prehistory/Native Americans, and historic sites. Each of these three topics is treated as if the text were included in a self-contained. To this more useful for different grade levels, this part may be used (1) as background information for the teacher; or (2) as material that can be photocopied and distributed to students. At the end of Part I a Glossary is provided.

Educational Trunks from PPHM

Educational trunks are loaded with touchable artifacts, photographs, books and a Teacher’s Guide. Trunks are loaned out for 4 days on a first-call, first-served basis. Teachers are responsible for picking up the trunk before 5:00 pm on Friday and returning the trunks no later than 5:00 pm the following Thursday. The trunk is portable, fitting in most vehicles. The teacher who receives the trunk is responsible for pickup and return and the care of the trunk's contents. The trunk rental is $25.00 for 4 school days, and can be paid for on pick-up or return.
