In this activity students will use a personal item to understand and share the importance of their past. Students will also connect this importance with reasons why all human past is important.
Archaeological sites and artifacts can be our link to the past. If we learn how to read these artifacts we can understand the people who made and used the objects. Even though the creators of the artifacts may have lived hundreds, even thousands, of years ago they probably had many of the same basic needs and concerns that we have today.
