Title 1 Schools Only - Thingamajigs and Whatchamacallits Field Trip Application 2016-2017 School Year
Thingamajigs & Whatchamacallits introduces students in 2nd and 3rd grades to the field of archaeology and provides them with an opportunity to explore the Presidio’s past cultures by comparing and contrasting artifacts. Utilizing their observation skills, students examine historic images to learn about daily life during the Ohlone, Spanish, and early Americans eras at the Presidio. Students then excavate dig boxes filled with replica artifacts and in small groups they classify their assemblage according to color, size, material, and function. After collectively charting their data as a class, students reflect on the similarities and differences between people’s daily lives throughout time and understand that although cultures use different artifacts for shelter, clothing, food, work, play, and transportation all humans share these similar needs.

**Limited transportation is available to eligible schools. For more information or to submit your application:
