GRADE SCHOOL ARCHAEOLOGY SESSIONS
In-school archaeology sessions for Massachusetts fourth, fifth and sixth graders are offered by Kevin Quackenbush, an avocational archaeologist. Mr. Quackenbush, a Trustee at the Massachusetts Archaeological Society and chairman of the MAS Education Committee, has been providing grade school sessions discussing archaeology for several years. The 'hands on' format of the session, offering students the opportunity to handle, and marvel at, the stone tools and projectile points of long past cultures, never fails to elicit great interest and classroom energy. If you are interested in arranging a session, Mr Quackenbush can be reached by e-mail at [email protected]
