In this project, students will learn about organic and inorganic materials as they relate to decomposition, archaeology, and the process of learning about early humans. In this project, students will place organic and inorganic materials in the worm composting bin to see how long it takes for things to decompose. Naturally, we will see that not everything will decompose. By doing this project, students will learn about the archaeological process and why we only have inorganic materials left to study about early human civilizations. Students will be asking this question: If this item was buried in the ground, would it still exist in 1000 years? The composting bin will be in use throughout the year, and could be used in other classroom projects as well (i.e. science and math). As a final deliverable in this project, students will examine their own homes for organic and inorganic materials. The students will consider what conclusions archaeologists in the future might come to about themselves.
