Product Description

This is a 21-page packet containing a brief social studies text, activities, assessments, and graphic organizers to teach elementary students about the Ancestral Pueblo and the Colorado Plateau.

I developed this social studies resource for my son the summer after he completed third grade, in preparation for visiting the Cliff Dwellings at Mesa Verde and other national parks in the southwest. He loved particularly the "challenges." My first-grade daughter loved making her own pottery designs and still prints those out and colors them in all the time.

This packet can be used to supplement a social studies unit, to complement an ELA unit on informational texts, or on its own to introduce the following topics:

The Ancestral Pueblo

The Colorado Plateau

Ancient Peoples of North America

Geography of the Southwest

Archaeology or Anthropology

Southwest Literature
