Native American Rock Art of the Southwest: An Introduction. Learning Objectives for this video:

  • Paleolithic Rock Art. Discover the characteristics of Native American rock art that remain constant across the Southwest and throughout time.
  • Name the Native American societies that created southwestern rock art and identify the time periods during which these societies existed.
  • Explore the two primary methods of creating rock art images: painting, which results in pictographs, and pecking, which creates petroglyphs.
  • Learn about representational and abstract images seen in the program and explain the difference between the two.
  • Outline several causes of the loss of rock art images, including reformation of the rock patina, pollution, mineralization of rocks, and defacing of images by modern people.
  • Discover the many benefits of using online video for visual learning. Educational video for teaching the K-12 curriculum provides online learning for children and students of all ages and abilities. Using subtitled video - or video with closed captions - enables children to choose between watching, listening to, or reading each presentation whichever best suites their individual learning style. A wonderful option particularly for dyslexia and special needs education.
