Preservation Archaeology in the Classroom

Resources for Educators

The field of archaeology is changing rapidly, and together we can prepare the next generation of archaeologists, advocates, educators, and enthusiasts.

Become a Preservation Archaeology Education Partner by exploring and sharing our free and low-cost resources for educators. For an overview of our offerings, and to find materials related to a specific topic, visit our Introduction to Southwestern Archaeology 101 guide to our resources.

Which materials are right for your students?

To help your students get a quick overview of a specific archaeological topic, culture, or place, share our fact sheet series and culture area pages. To go deeper, include back issues of Archaeology Southwest Magazine in your curriculum. Teach from individual back issues, or bundle multiple issues together for one low cost through a Digital Class Packet. For an extracurricular opportunity, invite students to our free, virtual Archaeology Café series where students can engage experts and ask questions in real time. And to help your students prepare for the future of archaeology, introduce them to existing datasets and sophisticated analysis tools through cyberSW, the largest database of Southwestern cultural artifacts, sites, and resources.

Break down barriers, inspire better conversations, and strengthen the future of Preservation Archaeology when you connect your students to our various resources for educators.
