DIG Into History: Each issue is theme-related with a special 10- to 12-page section that focuses on an archaeological discovery or topic related to the issue’s theme. Writers are most often experts in the area as accuracy and up-to-date information are key. The text is always engaging, vivid, and interesting. Geared to our readers, it complements the principles of Common Core and offers a great springboard for discussion, curriculum-related projects, and cross-disciplinary lesson plans. Included in each issue as departments such as Fun with Words (stories about theme-related words and expressions), What’s Wrong Here? (anachronisms in art), Artifacts (an uncovered object with a fascinating tale), Ask Away (reader questions answered by an archaeologist and an historian). Spirited word games and projects further involve readers in the issue’s theme.
