Benchley-Weinberger Elementary School
San Diego, CA
Officers from the San Diego Society of the AIA are leading a week-long workshop with a group of 5th-graders at Benchley-Weinberger Elementary School in San Diego, California. Students will work in groups throughout the week (10/16 through 10/20) to investigate a range of archaeological sites in order to learn more about what the site is, the drama of its discovery, and why the site is significant. Students will compile resources (images, videos, links) and compose text that will be brought together on 10/20/2017 in an interactive multi-media Story-Map that explores world archaeology. This story-map will be an artifact of the students' virtual/on-line excavation into how archaeology differs across the globe and why archaeology matters.
