Teaching Hinds

Comparing Two Cultures: Hinds Cave and Yours
In this lesson students compare their own culture with that of prehistoric people who camped at Hinds Cave in the Lower Pecos region of Texas thousands of years ago. Students become familiar with lesson-related vocabulary terms (in English and Spanish), locate Hinds Cave on a map, make cultural comparisons using a graphic organizer, and write a comparison/contrast essay on the two cultures.
