Anthropology- Archaeology


The culminating activity is Anthropology was an archaeological dig... IN CAKE! Students applied all of the skills and information they learned to record data and interpret the site. They were given cupcakes so as to not be temped to eat the matrix!


Anthropology- Mummification


This term in Anthropology, students learned about Physical Anthropology and types of preservation. To better understand the environments and contexts where human preservation can occurr, students mummified chicken bones. There were 5 types of preservation they studied- Bog Bodies, Ice Mummies, Desert Mummies, Chinchorro Mummies, and classical Egyptian Mummification. After several weeks, students exhumed their mummies and compared the results.
