AntiqutiyNOW Goes to School

It’s back to school time, and AntiquityNOW is gearing up to take our curricula and educational materials to social studies teachers across the country.  In October we will be exhibiting at the New Jersey Council for the Social Studies conference at Rutgers University, and in November we are conducting a poster session at the National Council for the Social Studies conference in St. Louis, Missouri.  We are very excited to share our lesson plans and to help make cultural heritage important to the next generation!

AntiquityNOW has a number of educational endeavors, including our Kids’ Blogs and activities; Today’s Muse that welcomes creative submissions; the Yesterday’s Child series that uses storytelling and related lesson plans and activities to promote critical thinking, literacy, different styles of learning and English language acquisition; and the soon-to-be-announced LegacyQuest, a video and film contest for early teens co-sponsored with the Archaeological Legacy Institute.

The Yesterday’s Child curricula and other educational projects are designed to accompany social studies programs currently used in the United States.  They adhere to the national social studies curriculum standards and incorporate other cultural perspectives to make our programming truly international.  The goal of our curricula is to teach more than history; they promote cultural appreciation and understanding worldwide.

Stay tuned and see what we’re planning next for tomorrow’s world citizens and future archaeologists!  If you are a teacher, archaeologist, internationalist, or just about anyone who cares about raising enlightened kids and you have ideas for educational programming, share with us on social media or at

It's no surprise that our community loves language! Our most popular blog post this month was the second installment of "The History in our Language," which explores the ancient inspiration for common English idioms.  Take a look, and please suggest your favorite sayings for part three!
