One of the primary purposes of the Saskatchewan Archaeological Society is education, both for teachers and their students, and for the general public. In addition to our publications, we have produced a number of other archaeology teaching and learning materials, available free of charge to our members, and by rental to non-members.
- Additional educational curriculum for our “Trappers and Traders: A Fur Trade Card Game“:
- In 2010, educational curriculum incorporating archaeology was developed by the SAS based on the Saskatchewan Evergreen Curriculum. Two documents with accompanying supplementary material were produced:
- Incorporating Archaeology into Lesson Plans: Educational Outcomes from the Saskatchewan Curriculum – Grades Four through Nine
- A Teaching Guide to Saskatchewan Archaeology (Companion Document)
*Both documents were revised as of January 2018.
- If you wish to acquire visual materials to further enhance either your own learning, or that of your students, we likely have what you need, please contact us.
- We have created kits comprised of the main kinds of prehistoric artifacts found on the northern Plains, called Archaeokits, which provide actual and replica artifacts used by past cultures in this part of the continent.
- One of our volunteers, Frank McDougall, a retired mining geologist and palaeontologist, has created two documents to assist in the identification of common rocks and fossils in Saskatchewan:
- Common Fieldstone Fossils of Saskatchewan
- A Guide for Identifying Common Rock and Fossil Specimens Found in Saskatchewan Museums
- Both editions of Frank’s guides were updated in April 2019.
- If you would like to learn more about Saskatchewan archaeology, have a look at our Introductory Handbook to Saskatchewan Archaeology.
- We also have educational resource kits on archaeology for rent (free for members). Please refer to our Archaeokits section.
- Our archaeological web links page contains links to websites that may be of use to teachers, educators, and students interested in archaeology.
- Kids! Need something to do?! Check out some colouring pages and word searches plus other activities on our NEW Kid’s Activities page!
