Subject: History

Learn, Practise, Excavate! Decode History from the ground up with augmented reality

There are three stages to this KS2 History resource, which shows pupils how archaeology is used to 'dig up the past'. The best way to understand the resource is to watch the introduction video.

Part 1: Worksheets and augmented reality bring archaeological techniques and strategies to life.

Part 2: Next, in a new departure for LGfL’s unique AR resources, pupils get the chance to practise those skills interactively within the AR app. This lays the groundwork for the most exciting stage – a real-life dig!

Part 3: Now Live - the opportunity to have a real-life dig in your school grounds. LGfL's archaeology expert Dr Diane Davies is coming soon to a school near you, where she will be filmed digging up layers of earth, inserting objects to 'be discovered' and then guiding London pupils through their dig.

Access to Learning Resources both in and away from school site is freely available with a TRUSTnet Core Service subscription.
