Anasazi Cliff Dwellings

The Ancient Pueblo People, or the Anasazi, are the cultural group often recognized as the ancestors to the modern day Pueblo people.


They were a populous and thriving civilization that resided in cliff dwellings, comprised of adobe bricks, and constructed atop mesas, or against the edges of natural caves as the bases of canyons.


To help solidify our understanding of this fascinating civilization, we created our very own Anasazi village!


As your little ones participated in this activity, they were given several opportunities to converse with their classmates, and discuss the best way to manipulate their three dimensional habitats.


Creating  historical structures provides a medium for learning that younger learners enjoy.


These environments allow them to tell a story, stimulate inquiry and depict reality!
