Hi Everyone! Happy Saturday! This week we are going to explore Archaeology! Today we have a list of links to learn about what Archaeology is.
Archaeology is the study of things that people made, used, and left behind. The goal of archaeology is to understand what people of the past were like and how they lived.(https://kids.britannica.com/kids/article/archaeology/352775)
One of the great things about traveling is visiting historical sites and learning about how other people lived. With travel currently limited, here is a nice way to visit some sites virtually and to learn a bit about archaeology. Be sure to check back for more links this week and send us a comment if you have any tips or links to share.
