Archeology: Weapons of the Texanos

Learners develop archaeological context skills through a simulation which places them in the year 2500. After listening to the teacher read, "Weapons of the Texanos," they record what they think the weapon is. Next, in groups, they pretend to be archaeologists unraveling the use of a mystery object (clothes hanger). The teacher finally reveals that the "weapon" is actually popcorn.
