Think Like an Archaeologist is a four classroom session program, with an additional fieldtrip to the Rhode Island School of Design’s Museum of Art and Brown University’s Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology. The sessions introduce 6th grade Social Studies students to the whole process of archaeology, from choosing an excavation site and learning to dig, to analyzing and caring for artifacts. Each session is hands-on, led by faculty, staff, and doctoral students from Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design. This is a partnership program between Brown University’s Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World, the Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology, and the Rhode Island School of Design’s Museum of Art for 6th grade Social Studies students in the Providence Public Schools.
