Piece together history across your curriculum, one artifact at a time!
Excavate! Social Studies Game
Learn History in a new way with Excavate!, a multi-game archaeology series based on the C3 skills of Inquiry and Evaluation of Evidence. Use Archaeological thinking as you excavate and analyze old and new world civilizations such as Mesopotamia, Rome, Egypt, Greece and Maya. Built in consultation with social studies teachers, each section of the game begins with an overarching question, to focus student inquiry as they dig, analyze, report and learn through object-based investigation. All games in the series include: highly detailed, authentic artifacts including special 3D artifacts that can be manipulated by the player; historically accurate, detailed ancient scenes that bring the sites fully to life; extensive information about the ancient civilization; and supporting teacher materials. Excavate! supports the new GBLxAPI learning data format (gblxapi.org), which reports student progress against C3 and ELA standards in an easy to understand format, allowing teachers to clearly see the work their students are doing. Excavate! is available as a bundle or each civilization may be purchased separately, providing flexibility for educators to match their curriculum needs.
