The Horned Lizard
While working in Chinle Arizona on the Navajo Indian Reservation, I was approached by members of the tribe to write about a sacred lizard and to create a comprehensive curriculum that contains Language, Science and Biology, with important Navajo Culture. This is a culturally sensitive curriculum about the Short Horned Lizard of Arizona that is considered to be a sacred animal know to the tribe for centuries. Ancient peoples of Arizona, such as the Anasazi, Hohokam, and Mogollon revered this lizard for its astonishing abilities as well as the Tarahumara people of Mexico who call it the Virgin's Little Bull. Not only interesting, this curriculum is full of cultural information as well as role playing for the children, biology, science, language arts in English with added Navajo language for cultural importance. Contains printable worksheets. 62 pages. Bulk discounts available.
