Pervasive Learning & Vacation Time

How much did the kids learn?
Was an interest in history or archaelogy sparked?
Or did they just enjoy the climbing up and down the ladders and through the tunnels?

I'm on a family vacation, we just spent a few days looking at the ruins of the Pueblo civilization in Mesa Verde. We saw their early pit homes built in the 800's and the very sophisticated cliff dwellings built and abandoned in the 1200's. There are many mysteries around this people in terms of why they built the way they did, how they lived, why they disappeared so completely, where they went to, and why nobody ever returned to these dwellings from the time they were abandoned (1285).
