Archeologists have helped us discover when,where and how the Mogollon culture of theSouthwest lived. It is important that studentsknow how people survived and created acivilization over two thousand years ago.Understanding the Mogollon culture will givestudents a chance to think about their ownculture.</p><p>PurposeIn this lesson students will gain a betterunderstanding of the Mogollon (muggy on ormuggy own) culture and how geographicfeatures and conditions influenced settlement invarious locations.</p><p>Materials Landform Regions of Arizona map Prehistoric Cultures of the Southwest map Student Handout Meet the Mogollons Layered Book Instructions PowerPoint with illustration of how the</p><p>layered book should be constructed(optional use)</p><p> 3 sheets of blank 81/2 by 11 paper foreach student</p><p> Colored pencils or crayons Stapler and/or glue Scoring Guide for Layered Book</p><p>ObjectivesThe student will be able to:</p><p>1. Locate the following prehistoric cultures on amap: Hohokam, Ancestral Puebloans (Anasazi),and Mogollon.</p><p>2. Identify key elements about the Mogollonculture.</p><p>3. Identify how the Mogollon used theirenvironment for survival.</p><p>ProceduresSESSION ONE</p><p>1. Brainstorm:a. Have students list at least 7 words that theyknow about the Hohokam, Ancestral Puebloans(Anasazi) and Mogollon cultures. Journals can beused for this activity.</p></li><li><p>b. Group students into pairs to combine their lists.Have the each pair create 4 sections on a piece ofnotebook paper. Title the top of each section withthe following categories: people, places, andevents.</p><p>c. Using the categories for a guide, student pairsshould place their words that they listed in theappropriate sections.</p><p>d. Instruct students to keep their lists to examineat the end of the lesson to help assess theirlearning.</p><p>2. Distribute a Landform Regions of Arizona mapto each student. Point out the desert, plateauand mountain areas mention that the Hohokamlived in the desert area, the Ancestral Puebloanslived on the plateau and the Mogollons lived in themountain area.</p><p>3. Distribute the Prehistoric Cultures of theSouthwest Map. Explain that these cultures livedwithin approximately the same time period (200B.C. 1300 A.D.) and adapted to their differentenvironments. They also traded with andborrowed ideas from one another. Tell studentsthat in this lesson, they will be learning about justone of these three cultures, the Mogollon.</p><p>4. Read Student Handout, Meet the Mogollons,about the Mogollon culture.</p><p>5. Create a layered book from information in thehandout. Directions for making a layered book areincluded in the student worksheets. Be sure toread through the directions for each section of thebook (information to be written and what shouldbe drawn). Discuss the Scoring Guide for LayeredBook. There is an optional PowerPoint whichshows how to assemble the layered book.</p><p>SESSION TWO:</p><p>6. Continue working on the layered book.</p><p>7. Have students find the lists of words theybrainstormed and categorized at the beginning ofthe lesson. Have the students think about what</p><p>they learned about other prehistoric cultures.Share as a group or pair share their findings aboutthe Mogollon culture.</p><p>AssessmentThe layered book can be graded for correctinformation, good sentences, and effort.Mastery would be 80 percent. See the ScoringGuide for Layered Book.</p><p>ExtensionsResearch Mimbres Pottery Design a bowl in theMimbres tradition reflecting one of the areasstudied in the reading.</p><p>Research prehistoric pictographs or petroglyphs.Create a story from the pictures.</p><p>Write a summary after completing the layeredbook.</p><p>Create a bulletin board with the layered books.</p><p>SourcesAlaird, Carilyn and Marilyn Market.
