The mission of Adventures in Learning with Indiana Jones is to provide educators with teacher-tested, standards-based lesson plans and resources that will allow them to integrate everyone's favorite archaeologist into classrooms across the curriculum. Too often, students complain of history as boring or uninspiring. They shouldn't anymore! With teaching ideas designed to motivate and inspire, Adventures in Learning with Indiana Jones can help you bring to life a variety of topics that will capture the imagination of your students.
This will always be a work in progress and we welcome all input as we strive to serve as a hub for the sharing of innovative and creative ideas that will benefit both teachers and students. So come along for the ride and don't forget your whip and hat!
