      Kids become archaeologists for a day

      Kids became mini-archaeologists Monday as a part of Peter White Public Library's Dig Into Reading summer program.

      Children, first grade and older, took part in hands-on activities all relating to archaeology.

      A scavenger hunt, historic puzzles, artifacts, and tool gathering were just some of the fun options.

      Volunteers from the Marquette Regional History C enter showed the youngsters what archaeology is all about, and why it's fun.

      "I think today's activities will give kids an overall view of what archaeology is and, hopefully, instill an interest in history through archaeology," said Susan Belanger, a volunteer.

      After completing the activities, kids were awarded a prize worthy of an archaeologist.
