dc.description.abstract According to area teachers, one of the main reasons they do not frequently bring classes on fieldtrips to the Ball State Art Museum is because of the difficulty in aligning the museum's collection with the requirements of state-mandated curriculum. Most teachers do not have either the training or the time to teach state curriculum using objects of art. The purpose of this teacher resource packet is to provide teachers with that connection. It examines various museum objects and their relation to various Indiana academic standards. The scope of this packet is, as the title suggests, objects found in the Ball State Art Museum's ancient art collection, and it focuses primarily upon linking these objects with sixth and seventh grade academic standards in social studies. This packet follows in a tradition of such teacher resources at the Ball State Art Museum, where teacher packets currently exist for American, Native American and African American art found in the museum. All of the museum's teacher resources are available online at, under the subheading "Education." In the future, after ongoing website revisions, this packet will also be available on the museum's website.
