Enjoy the challenge of digging and discovering what is hidden deep in the sand. A wonderful activity for students of all ages who love to dig, explore and use their imagination. A great wet weather activity, under the sand pit roof.

The Archaeological Dig offers students the opportunity to patiently discover and exhume artefacts, bones and items discovered from the Gold Era within the Wombat State Forest. Students then need to hypothesis on the item found.

The Alphabet Dig is a wonderful way to incorporate literacy skills into your program. Students are challenged to dig, discover and remove 26 - one for each letter of the alphabet. They then need to match the item with a photo and finally place the photo on the correct letter on Sammy the Snail's Alphabet Shell.
