Our teacher, Mrs. Leggee, went to different classrooms and took the garbage from waste- baskets. We examined the garbage to figure out where it came from. We answered the following questions as we listed where the garbage came from: 1. What subject was the class working on? 2. What grade did the different garbage come from? 3. What reason did they have for throwing the garbage away? We also pretended we lived 100 years from now and found a penny on the ground. We examined the penny carefully to see what we could find out about the people of 1991. We found that the people of 1991 had freedom, a leader, a number, a writing and a language system. It was fun being an archaeologist and pretending.
