1. At the end of this lesson, what did you expect your students to deeply understand and/or be able to do? (Please attach lesson plan or other describing documentation) Students were expected to understand the purpose, processes and procedures of archaeology.

2. How did you and your students know the expected learning(s) were achieved? Students were assessed on the “civilization” they created, the “artifacts” they created, and the slideshow they created to report their findings and conclusions.

3. How did making the technology product support or accelerate students reaching the learning goals? Students were expected to make a presentation to the class discussing the progress of their dig and the conclusions about the discovered “civilizations.” Creating a slideshow is motivating and an excellent way to present to the class.
