Educator Resources

We provide resources to formal and informal educators seeking to use archaeology for learners of all ages, including yearly pre-service and in-service teacher workshops. Our archaeology Discovery Trunks are loaned for free to educators statewide. The trunks cover all periods of human occupation in Iowa, from the Paleoindians to historic dairy farming, and include standards-based lessons developed and adapted by experienced curricula writers on staff.
