Dig Box

Dig Box

Regular price $160.00 Sale

Take your students out to the school sand pit or garden and let them be archaeologists for the day! After being forced to work online for so long, students will really love getting out of the classroom and in to the great outdoors for a fun, hands-on outdoor lesson with real archaeological tools and methods.

Set up the dig site with the trench pegs and string line into a grid square pattern. Bury the artefacts provided and have the students dig up the artefacts with the trowels and brushes, all whilst keeping the items in context. Photographic scales are provided so that the items can be photographed, measured and drawn in-situ. Students are provided with worksheets similar to those used by real archaeologists to record their finds.  

A nice storage box is provided so that you can store the kit until its next use. You will get many years of use out of this kit!
