Your Answers: Imagine what you would find on an archeological dig in your neighborhood!

Last week, we learned about a boy who found a mastodon tooth while out on a family hike. Then we asked: Imagine you're an archeologist. Tell us what you think might be buried in your neighborhood? Here are a few of your answers:


 

“What I think I would find in an archeological dig in my neighborhood is maybe some rocks and old toys that kids lost, but it would be really really cool is a dinosaur bone. I would love to find one. One time I thought I found a dinosaur bone but it was just an old dog toy bone.”

— Jayden from The Academic Center in North Ridgeville


 

“The things I think an archaeologist would find in my neighborhood are arrowheads, wooden spoons, and tools. I think they would find arrowheads because my dad and I have found arrowheads and that's what Indians used to kill animals. The Indians used tools and wooden spoons for everyday things such as eating foods in a bowl. They used the wooden spoon for eating the food and they used tools such as rocks and wood to make a bowl. That is what I think an archaeologist would find in my neighborhood.”

— Harper from Jackson Center Local Schools in Jackson Center


 

“If I was on an archeological dig in my neighborhood. I think I would find some type of majestic bird. I think that because there are lots of birds in my area. I think it would be really cool to find one of the first fossils in Ohio.”

— Parker From Hilltop Elementary in Canfield


 

“What I would find would probably be some old animal bones. Where I live, nothing really goes on but it would really be cool to find some old treasure!”

— Erin from Willowick Middle School in Willowick


 

“I think that I would find buck antlers in an archeological dig in my neighborhood because there are a TON of deer where I live in Worthington. Also, deer are very common compared to other things like dinosaurs. That is why I think I would find deer antlers in an archeological dig in my neighborhood.”

— Evan from Wilson Hill Elementary in Worthington


 

“In my neighborhood, I think there could be dinosaur teeth. If there were real dinosaur teeth in my neighborhood, I think I would have found it by now. If somehow there is, I will find it soon.”

— Connor from Gilles Sweet Elementary School in Fairview Park
