Discover Archaeology – ATP

Curriculum Connections

Division Two programs focus on local and regional cultural identities in Alberta and Canada. Grade 4 students are introduced to 11,000 years of life in Alberta. From native life, to the fur trade and European settlement, station work and excavations provide students with insight into Alberta’s history and ancestry from an archaeologist’s point of view. Through station work and excavations, Grade 5 students examine Canadian history and peoples through archaeology. Grade 6 students explore the science of archaeology. From survey to lab work, they look at how and why archaeologists make the decisions they do.
