Cross-Curricular Lessons Exploring Cultural Heritage

CyArk is building an online library of 3D models of the world’s cultural heritage sites, accompanied by a collection of free cross-curricular lesson plans. For example, Lesson 1 in the CyArk collection engages students in using 3D archaeological data to build scale models of a Mayan pyramid with sugar cubes. Students then conduct an experiment on erosion to learn about its effect on archaeological sites. Lessons 17–26 connect mathematics to Mount Rushmore with activities that relate to measurement, geometry, and algebra. Some of the activities are as simple as identifying shapes, while others are as complex as predicting when two cracks on the surface of Mount Rushmore might intersect over time. Some CyArk lessons are offered in both English and Spanish.
