SunWatch Archaeological Park

This fall, our Upper Unit students had the opportunity to visit the SunWatch Archaeological Park to learn more about the prehistory of our region. In Social Studies this year, they will be studying the common needs of people and this was a great place to start examining what we need as individuals and as a community to survive and thrive in our environment. 

Our students were able to see how the community was set up and explore recreations of some of the original structures found there. We also looked at the agriculture of the early residents of the Ohio Valley and discussed how archaeologists learn about ancient cultures.
