Social Studies for Kids---archaeology, paleontology, and earth sciences

Social Studies for Kids

Welcome to dig™ magazine's website. dig™ brings the excitement, mystery, wonder, and fun of archaeology, paleontology, and earth sciences to children ages 9 and older in a style that both entertains and educates its young readers.  Visit  The Hungate excavation is the biggest ever archaeological dig in York city centre. The archaeologists will be uncovering 2000 years in the life of York until the end of 2011.   Archaeologists try to learn who lived in the past, where they lived, what they ate, what they believed and the effect they had on their environment. Archaeologists learn this through looking at the physical remains left by people. Artefacts, such as pottery, tools, weapons and jewellery, help archaeologists create a picture of the past. Buildings, evidence of farming and plant remains are also useful for understanding how our ancestors lived.

"This site will help you find the scholarship and enjoyment in studying Social Studies. A dual focus will consist of topics for information purposes and topics for help with homework, papers, etc. After all, history is not just dates, economics is not just numbers, geography is not just maps, government is not just laws, and culture is not just 'over there.' These are vibrant disciplines that tell us where we've been, how we afforded to get where we are, where our future will take us, how we can get there peacefully, and how we can share that future with other peoples." David White
