Dear Art Educators,

Here are easy hands-on activities that a classroom
teacher can do with a unit on Anasazi (social studies)
or petroglyphs/pictographs (science).
Make your own chalk for Pictographs:

Jan Hillmer did this lesson in a very short time -
Petroglyphs
http://www.princetonol.com/groups/iad/lessons/elem/Samantha-rock.htm#Jan
(clay would have to be dried ahead of time). You don't
need to be an art teacher to do these lesson ideas
(although it helps -smile)
Students could even do both to help learn the
difference between pictographs (drawn or painted) and
petroglyphs (carved or incised).

Anasazi links

Use these with the Chaco Canyon site and Web Quest
posted previously.

Jan Hillmer did this unit interdisciplinary with
science and social studies - looking at Lascaux caves.
Links for those sites are on this page:

(also on the lesson page above).

Regards,

Judy Decker
