This activity simulates the analysis of an archaeological dig on an island thought to possibly be Atlantis.  Students may work in groups or independently as they write an essay with their deductive inferences.  Essays are then shared in a “read-around” activity.    This lesson includes descriptions and details about running a “read-around” and provides additional resources that may be used as extensions of this lesson.

The lesson typically takes most classes two full periods to complete in addition to a homework assignment.  It may take three to three and a half class periods if done completely in class.

A good introductory lesson to consider using with Atlantis is our “The Flowers of Guatemala” lesson.
