JCPS students take part in archeological dig at Seaton House

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Some Jefferson County Public Schools students are getting their hands dirty this week at the Conrad-Seaton House.

They're digging for what could be the rarest of finds.

The second grade students from Tully Elementary are taking part in a class called Shaping the Earth. They're studying the properties of rocks, history and archaeology. Teachers say nothing beats the hands-on experience.

"Absolutely!" said Laura Keeling of Tully Elementary. "They are inside measuring and weighing and using digital...so they are using a lot of science process skills."

The Conrad-Seaton House is a 200-year-old building, and the grounds house is one of the area's earliest pottery businesses.
