A colored stela.

Log on for these FREE live learning sessions every Friday. Perfect for kids in grades K–6 to dig deeper into world cultures, archaeology, and anthropology with demonstrations of hands-on projects to do at home.

Hosted in collaboration with the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration’s Community of Learning.

Artifacts share clues that help us learn about world cultures. Students will step into the role of an archaeologist to unpack interesting information that artifacts can tell us, just by using our eyes. Students will learn how to decode secrets about artifacts by closely observing, questioning, and talking about them. Students will then hone their observational skills creating an illustration of an artifact in the Penn Museum collection.

Recommended materials: Blank sheet of paper and a writing utensil.
