Instructions: Please add relevant online archaeological and historical content that would help teachers create lesson plans, and or students find content, during episodes of social distancing (and of course after).
2
Content and topics often missed in standard curriculum would be incredibly valuable as well.
3
- Please search (ctrl F) to make sure your entry does not already exist.
4
- Please add approximate age range. If your content has stuff for 5 years through Undergrad, that's fine too, but any narrowing down helps educators find content.
5
- Please use age in years where possible so folks from different primary school terminological communities can find information. Grad/Undergrad are fine for secondary/post-secondary communities to account for the high rates of 'non-trads'
