The Kansas Historical Society offers curriculum pieces that use archeology principles in the classroom, which are designed for fourth through seventh grade students. Using primary sources and relating the material to many Kansas history, reading, writing, science and mathematics standards, these units help students acquire critical thinking, scientific inquiry, problem solving, cooperative learning, and citizenship skills. Each unit offers a student magazine, student journal, and teacher guide.
