This spring, we have had the opportunity to work with a variety of school groups on the Artifact Investigation Workshop. From 5th grade students to seniors in high school, the workshop has been exciting and successful so far!
The students are divided into small groups to investigate Himalayan artifacts.
Each student fills out their Artifact Investigation Worksheet, documenting their observations about the texture, shape, size, weight, important markings, and hypnosis of their artifact.
Next, each group prepares a presentation to their classmates about their artifact what they have discovered. Groups focus on describing their artifact, telling what it could teach us about Himalayan culture, and a hypothesis about the object.
Finally, each group sees an image of their artifact in context as we discuss each artifact.
