Pyramids along the Mississippi


Pyramids Along the Mississippi

The pyramids outreach program is popular for 5th and 6th grades. This program is an anthropological look at our region and the people who have inhabited it. Fossils, tools, and artifacts will be presented with an emphasis on ‘mound builders’ of the region.

Cahokia Mounds

Webquest and Info – a little outdated but resourceful

Project Idea:

Putnam staff will help your students research and then create a website that maps out mounds in the area. This in-depth look will not only provide great research information, it will generate excitement as your class builds a resource for other students in the region. Email brooker@putnam.org if you are interested.
