The NYC Archeology Repository (a project of the New York City Landmarks Preservation Committee) offers a number of educational resources designed to engage students with archeology. While many of these resources are designed with New York City K-12 Social Studies teachers in mind, some of these resources may also appeal more broadly to educators interested in incorporating archeology into existing curriculum. A highlight of these resources is a collection of interactive quizzes designed to engage learners with items from the repository. In these quizzes, learners are invited to try and identify items in the NYC repository, from cannonballs to hair combs, or to identify the age of certain artifacts. The section entitled Ideas for Teachers contains information about how archeology aligns with the Common Core and links to two outside websites (from the Smithsonian Institute and the National Park Service, respectively).
