A teacher's activity guide targeted for fourth through seventh grades is available. The lessons encourage teachers to use Aztec Ruins and the loaner trunk of replica artifacts as a resource to help them teach language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, and art. Drafted by teachers who attended "Project Archeology" workshops, lessons include hands-on activities that students undertake either on a field trip to Aztec Ruins or in the classroom with the replica artifacts. Produced through funds from a National Park Foundation grant, the guide has been distributed to all San Juan County area schools.
