Today we held our Archeology Exhibition! We were very excited to share our understanding of ancient history with the school community.
Over the last 5 weeks, we completed a great inquiry which involved selecting a civilisation, posing research questions, judging sources, finding and sorting out facts, making connections, writing paragraphs and producing a formal report. We’ve read millions of books, been on field trips and spoken to experts.
Finally, we designed artefacts to represent each of our research questions. We thought about where they could be found, how they would have aged and what they would tell an archeologist upon discovery. We had a wonderful time with clay, paint and a variety of found and smashed objects to create our “ancient” artefacts.
We also thought about how to explain our knowledge to an audience. We decided to make palm cards to help our memory and practiced using eye contact to communicate.
We are very thankful to the students, parents and teachers who visited our exhibition today.
We all took on the role of archeologists and used our best communication skills. It was great fun showing off our knowledge to the older and younger students. We are very proud of ourselves today.
