Visit to an Archeological Site

Wish I had learned History like this...

Al Qamar Academy students visited a real archaeological pre historic site to see a dig in progress, courtesy Sharma Centre for Heritage Education.

The children learned how the site is demarcated into sections and saw how the workers were carefully sifting through the debris to fins the minutest sign of a pottery shard or a stone tool.

The children handled samples of skulls (probably the most thrilling activity). They made drawing of what they saw and wrote poetry.

Talk about interdisciplinary and meaningful work!!

THANKS Shanti Pappu and Akhilesh Kumar for really going out of the way for the kids. You made a memorable history for them.
