Design Your Own Anasazi Pottery
For young budding anthropologists, this is the perfect creative project. In this activity, your child will study images of Anasazi pottery, then use what she's learned to create her own patterned pottery in the Anasazi style. Anasazi is Navajo for "Ancient Ones", and is the name given to the ancient people who lived in the present-day Four Corners region of the United States. This project is a great way to introduce your child to the art of ancient peoples and will help whet her curiosity about the diverse cultures of the world.
