Archaeology in the Classroom

In History we talked about 'Old and New' buildings and objects, things which last a long time and ones which soon rot away.
'How do we know it happened?': Evidence.
We know about the past through looking at evidence.

The children in Miss Costello's class asked their grandparents what it was like when they were growing up. They brought things to show the class (horse shoes, photographs, music records, toys, clothes, heirlooms etc.).
We set up a class museum/display and discussed the items:
What things were used for?
Do we still use them?
What are they made of and how were they made?
If you have any old items (artefacts) that you can bring to school could you please bring them to Miss Costells prefab? Thank you!
