Archaeologists Dig for Clues

Read and find out about what archaeologists are looking for, how they find it, and what their finds reveal in this colorfully illustrated nonfiction picture book.

Archaeologists on a dig work very much like detectives at a crime scene. Every chipped rock, charred seed, or fossilized bone could be a clue to how people lived in the past.

In a starred review, School Library Journal called this a "delightful" book "that students will return to again and again." It's a fun introduction to the basics of archaeology and what you need to know to go on a dig.

This is a clear and appealing science book for early elementary age kids, both at home and in the classroom. It's a Level 2 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades. The 100+ titles in this leading nonfiction series are:
