Extractions: Many youth organizations promote outdoor-type activities that frequently bring both leaders and youth into contact with archaeological sites on public and private lands. Raising the awareness of the leaders and youth about the nature of archaeological resources, their significance, and their fragility can contribute to the preservation of the nation's archaeological heritage. This project will develop a training workbook on archaeological resources for youth group leaders that will contain activities designed to raise awareness and understanding as well as promote a conservation ethic. The workbook will be made available to all interested organizations and individuals via publication on the Internet's World Wide Web. Project Description: Most leaders of youth groups have not had formal training in archaeology, so the Workbook will include a general introduction to the field including the nature of archaeological resources, why these resources are important, and how and why they should be preserved. Activities including games and simulations designed to demonstrate the principals of archaeological reasoning and to reinforce the need to protect the archaeological record will be adapted from lesson plans that have already proven to be successful. Projects that youth organizations can undertake to involve young people in the identification and preservation of archaeological resources will be presented, and resources available for understanding and promoting archaeological stewardship will be identified.
