What mineral makes red, and which makes yellow?
When brushed with a yucca plant fiber?
The pictograph art will also reveal
The damage to art by a fire.
Basketry and Matting
A rectangular coil basket--
A most unusual find;
And pottery from a basket mold;
Definitely one of a kind!
A coil like a lollipop
Helped make the thumb print pot.
A jar rest kept the pots upright
And smoke stains show pots got hot.
Southwest Pottery Traditions
Find one pot without black decor;
Find one light orange pot, too;
And before you go another step
Find one shaped like a shoe.
Black on White
Here we have a ladle
And five human figures on sherds.
I also spy a double mug
But none shaped like a bird.
Pottery Shapes and Uses
Little dishes made for play,
A painting of a bird;
Jar lids came in handy
And here's that shape of a bird.
Tools and Cordage
Find the smallest awl of all
And can you find a skinner?
If you find an ax with handle
You'll be a real winner.
Cultivating Foods-Food Preparation
Can you spot the chewed bread rolls
And recipe to make it?
I spy squash and corn and beans
But can't see how to bake it.
Wild Plant and Animal Food
Where's the smallest animal used for food?
Can you find a snare?
Food to fill the tummy:
Pinion and prickly pear!
Find 43 white dots on black
A hand print and a thumb print.
Find a corncob and some roof mud
Without a single hint.
Two thousand nine hundred sixty-nine pieces
All found in a pottery jar;
A stone ring, bird bones and green frog
But nothing shaped like a star.
