Summary

Though preservation and cultural resource management laws were written with the public in mind, effectively engaging the public is a constant challenge. In the face of demands for measurable results in education programs and the classroom, both archaeologists and educators are turning focus towards assessment. Archaeology teaching kits for elementary classrooms can be useful tools, facilitating an integration of archaeological material into schools. Deaccessioned archaeological materials from the I-95 byway through Sandpoint, Idaho, found new life as hands-on components of teaching kits for Idaho elementary classrooms. Kit development included educator and student testing and feedback, which will be explored here.
