High School Students Trade Pencils for Shovels

WILMINGTON -- Students from Isaac Bear Early College High School got their hands dirty Thursday.

It was all part of a simulated archealogy dig by students from all grades.

It took place behind the Boys and Girls Center.

After marking their sites, students used G-P-S systems to find artifacts such as hair, pottery and notes that needed to be decoded.

The teacher in charge of the dig says it's a great way to do some hands on learning.

This is the first freshman class at the early college high school.

They move in to their new building in March.
