Notable Definitions

This is a cheap and easy way to keep unfamiliar words on hand. Students write the word on one side and the definition on the opposite. The cards can be color-coded in alphabetical order, and text can also be typed, printed, and glued to the cards.

slide7

Vocabulary Words:

  • Students write the key terms on the
  • index card, and the card is flipped
  • over to record the definition for the
  • word.
  • Sometimes there is more than one
  • definition recorded.

Day 2-5: Archaeology…Can You Dig It?

August

Two students from Tuscarora High School assisted me for a week to remove sod, create a grid, and document and bury 120 artifacts within the site. The grid was then removed, and I waited for the students to arrive.

Harper Park Archaeological Dig Site

This is a picture of the dig site taken by our principal, Mr. Shipp, from the roof of our school.

Lesson 2: Can You Dig It?

Students are actively engaged at the dig site.

The staff members donated items from their travels, and the students were thrilled with every discovery.

Dig site tools & materials were donated from local businesses. We spent 3 class periods excavating.

slide10

Dig Site: All work…and some play made for a great three days of excavating at the dig site. This hands-on project was one of the highlights of our unit on archaeology…but the best was yet to come!

Think . Pair . Share Activity

What are the key elements of a culture?

Students are provided with time to think independently.

Next, the students at each table pair up and discuss their thoughts by recording their ideas on sticky notes.

Finally, each group shares their chart depicting the key elements with the rest of the class.

Cultural Diversity

Active Expression Remotes

In order to reach consensus and make decisions regarding the class culture, students readily use the remotes to cast their vote. The remotes also serve to provide anonymity for students.
