What is an Archaeologist Lapbook Printables

This is a post that I did back in 2009. I have put the Lapbook on my 4share for others to use. This is the first time I have put one of my lapbooks up. Let me know if I can do something easier than what I am doing. Feedback would be much appreciated. If you have any questions please, don't hesitate to ask. The links will be at the end of the post. I do not have a cover page, Bug made her own picture. You may notice that some of the clipart is different. I wasn't sure of some of my sources and I didn't want to violate any copyright laws. Since then I have purchased a clipart program. I hope you enjoy. This has been one of my kids favorite lapbooks that we have done. This book we used with Sonlight, Intro to World History Core B or if you prefer the old name, Core 2. This will also be available on my Free Printable page.




We are loving the books this year with the Sonlight Introduction to World History Core 1. As soon as I seen the book Archaeologists dig for clues I knew I had to do a lapbook. We also checked out the Kids dig reed and followed them along an adventure.
We did an excavation dig on paper. I made squares and in each square I had pictures of varies artifacts. Bug had to keep a record of each item on her clip board. First she had to label the square, count the items and then write a description of the artifacts on her clipboard. We did a lot of the things that they did in the book.

We talked about what is an archaeologist and what they do. For some crazy reason Bug thought this was the best part, what kind of things someone would find in our trash". Bug thought that part was neat and she had some interesting observation about our family. We counted items in our backpack and made sure we had all our supplies needed to go out in the field.
Some of the things that the book didn't talk about that I included:

What the bible says about the age of the earth.
What is the differences between an paleontologist and an Egyptologists.
Then we found out which president was an amateur archaeologist. Do you know? Hint-it was our third president.

We measured artifacts and added some famous archaeologist. I added some that had biblical discoveries. I had to include the discovery of Kings Tut's tomb. To me that is an amazing find!
We had fun with this book. In a few weeks we are going to dig in the dirt and unearth our own artifacts.
