Project Archaeology

Project Archaeology collaborates with the Indiana Council for the Social Studies to provide Indiana educators with resources that incorporate archaeological concepts into social studies education. As a liaison partner, Project Archaeology helps educators understand and appreciate diverse cultures and history through archaeological inquiry. Their resources are designed to support educators with curricular materials, professional development, and support for integrating archaeology into the classroom. Through this partnership, Indiana teachers have access to innovative teaching methods that align with state social studies standards.
