A group of 24 fourth-graders at Camarillo Heights Elementary School in California took their shovels and explored a "dig" site at the school to work as archaeologists. They found broken pottery, animal bones and other artifacts, and tracked their findings and wrote descriptions. "It's a great experience for the kids to get outside and see that science is not all beakers and experiments," said Melinda Berge, a senior at California State University-Channel Islands who led the activity as part of her capstone graduation project.
