Event description

Description

Please join us at the St. Augustine Lighthouse and Maritime Museum for our Project Archaeology: Investigating a Light Station teacher training workshop. Learn fundamental archaeological skills, discover what archaeology can tell us about life at a light station, and explore how archaeology can enhance learning opportunities in math, science, art and more! All types of educators are welcome!

Project Archaeology: Investigating Shelter is a supplementary science and social studies curriculum unit ideal for grades 3-5. The Investigating a Light Station builds on this guide and takes students through an archaeological investigation at the St. Augustine Lighthouse, including accounts from oral history, use of primary documents, and interpreting the archaeological record. Workshop participants will receive hands-on guidance in using the curriculum as well as free archaeology education materials published by Project Archaeology and the Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN).

This program is funded in part by a Florida Department of State grant-in-aid community education grant.

Please contact Emily Jane with questions at emurray@flagler.edu or 903-392-7874.
