PFFS-U 6th graders are going to a local archaeological site once used by the Hohokam culture. We are currently studying ancient cultures in our Science and Humanities courses, so this expedition provides them an incredible opportunity to see examples of what they have only read and heard about thus far!
We are lucky to have access to this site, which is used for research purposes. One of our sixth grade parents, Mark Elson, is an archaeologist and will be giving us a personal tour. If you have any specialized information about ancient cultures or natural resources of this region and would like to help with presenting information during our expedition, please let me know. It is wonderful to have parents share their wealth of knowledge with the school community.
As with every expedition, your student needs a water bottle, a sack lunch, closed toe shoes and weather appropriate clothing. Friday’s forecast is a high of 90 with a 50% chance of rain, so sending your student with a rain coat or umbrella would be great. If it starts thunder storming, we will not stay outdoors.
