TRUSSVILLE — Fourth-graders from Paine Intermediate School in Trussville recently participated in a prehistoric mini-archaeological dig.
Students learned interesting facts from archaeologist Joel Watkins. Watkins, from the Office of Archaeological Research at the University of Alabama, talked with the fourth grade students about the Hewitt-Trussville Stadium archaeological dig site and the pre-historical artifacts that were unearthed.
The fourth grade Integrated Literacy CAD designed an Alabama Prehistoric Native American Unit that adhered to the fourth grade Alabama history standards and the fourth grade College and Career Ready Standards. The unit culminated with the dig.
