Enrichment Package: Activity 4 -- Comparing Lifestyles: Pre-Visit
This activity involves measurement, simple scale drawings, and use of basic math skills. Students take measurements of their own bedrooms to use as data for their drawings. They will also make a list of personal possessions. These measurements and lists will be used to compare the lifestyles of the students with the lifestyle of the Ancestral Puebloan people, during the on-site and post-visit activities #6 and #8.
