Discover the history of the Pueblo Indians with this website from the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center.
Targeted towards upper elementary and middle school students, students can easily navigate through the site using the timeline format and learn the chronological story of the Pueblo Indians. After reading the introductory information on the home page, click the link in either the upper banner or in the lower right hand corner to begin exploring using the timeline. On the timeline, you can chronologically examine the development of the Pueblo Indian Nation through the following time periods:
- Paleoindian – through 6000 B.C.
- Archaic – 6000 – 500 B.C.
- Basketmaker – 500 B.C. – A.D. 750
- Pueblo I – A.D. 750 – 900
- Pueblo II – A.D. 900 – 1300
- Post-Migration – A.D.1300 – 1950
- Modern Pueblo – A.D. 1950 – today
When arriving at the selected page, texts and images provide the student with an overview of the time-period. Throughout the pages, click on the blue highlighted words to learn vocabulary definitions or click the “Glossary” link in the upper left to see all the associated vocabulary. Each page, except for the Post-Migration page, includes links in the upper right for the time-period to:
- Explore a related interactive map.
- Discover what food was eaten.
- Learn about their housing.
- See information about artifacts.
At the bottom of each page is a link to the “For Teachers” page that explains why to teach about Pueblo history.
This is a wonderful site that students can use on their own or with a teacher.
