Reflection: Adjustments to Practice An Archaeological Satire - Section 3: Closure


This is an engaging lesson that I can't wait to introduce to my students again.  This next time through, however, I'll be sure to wait until much later in the year.  I found the book over the summer, and couldn't wait to plug it in to my Archaeology unit, but although the kids thought it was fascinating, they didn't get as much out of it as I KNOW they would have after Spring Break.  I will also include this in my Inferences Unit in some way next year.  It's a really unique book with many uses!
