An Integrated Teaching Module.
Samuel, Marie R.; Seiferth, Berniece B.
This integrated teaching module provides elementary and junior high school teachers with a "hands-on" approach to studying the Anasazi Indian. Emphasis is on creative exploration that focuses on integrating art, music, poetry, writing, geography, dance, history, anthropology, sociology, and archaeology. Replicas of artifacts, contemporary Indian handicrafts, pictures, maps, historical accounts, geographical descriptions, and information about scientific theories of daily life of the ancient Anasazi help students visualize early life in the pueblos. Student activities include writing imaginary letters from children of the pueblo, creating a diary of an Anasazi child, dramatizing, dancing to Indian music, constructing simple instruments and costumes, weaving Ojos de Dios (Eyes of God -- age-telling devices and talismans), sand painting, and preparing an Indian recipe.
