Linking Culture and Environment: What Can the Anasazi Tell Us?
Sunal, Cynthia Szymanski; Vinson, Beth McCulloch
This document presents a series of eight lesson plans (or "learning cycles") for teaching fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students about the Anasazi Indians of the southwestern United States. Each lesson sets forth intended grade level, background information on the key idea and goal, time needed, prerequisite skills and concepts, a lesson outline, and references. Within each lesson is an exploration phase, setting out the overall objective and material needed; an introduction, setting out the procedure to follow and the manner of evaluation; an invention phase, also detailing objectives, materials, and procedures; and an expansion phase, containing similar components. Lessons include: (1) "Anasazi Indians: Pottery & Chemistry"; (2) "Anasazi Environmental Architecture"; (3) "The Land of the Anasazi: Their Natural Resources, Environment, and Climate"; (4) "Geography of the Anasazi Civilization"; (5) "Land Use and Erosion in the Anasazi Civilization"; (6) "Erosion of the Anasazi Land"; (7) "Anasazi's Use of Resources"; and (8) "Relating Anasazi Customs and Sky Patterns."
