The National Park Service hosts a series of lesson plans and activities for teachers. The Museum Management Program through the NPS has a compilation of lesson plans revolving around teaching with museum collections.

The Society for American Archaeology hosts a number of lesson plans and activities for learners K-12 as well as for Post-Secondary education.

Archaeology in the Community has compiled a list of books targeted at students K-12 to introduce students to archaeology. 

The Brick Store Museum also has a growing library of curriculum kits that are available on request.
