Archaeology learning station: Dig into history and discover how archaeologists help us learn about the past. Participate in mock digs to see if you have what it takes to be an archaeologist.
Architecture learning station: How a house is built tells us a lot about who lived there and what their life was like. Build a small structure and then try to knock it down to discover which brick pattern is the strongest.
Then and Now learning station: Explore how life in the 1762 is similar to and different from life in 2018. Find comparable items from the 18th and 21st centuries and sort them into appropriate containers.
