Lesson Plan Content
Description: 
In this lesson students will gain a better understanding of how we use geography to interpret the past. Students will be able to describe how places with petroglyphs, like the Petrified Forest National Park, have changed over time, and analyze if humans have impacted the area in a positive or a negative way as a result of the rock art we see today.
