Eight hands-on, archaeology and cultural history-based activities designed for archaeologists to use with the public at archaeology fairs and other non-formal classroom events. Each activity is laid out in 'recipe fashion' with directions about the minimum recommended age, a list of objectives about what the activity is trying to teach, and preparation and procedure steps, including what materials need to be purchased or otherwise arranged for. Each activity has been successfully tested with children and each promotes a preservation message: How to report a find, how to protect a resource, and how to contact the State Historic Preservation Office.
