4th Grade - Lascaux Cave Paintings

Our fourth graders discovered the amazing cave paintings from a civilization that lived 17,000 years ago.  They watched a video and went on virtual tour to see the cave images and to learn more about the original  artists who made them.   We discussed how these images leave behind clues of how this ancient civilization lived and what was important to them.  Then, they went on their own cave adventure in our art room where the walls and tables were transformed into surfaces of a cave (aka. brown butcher paper).  They had to use flash lights and work in teams to leave images that future civilizations could find  and learn something about how we live.

Here is the link to the virtual tour of Lascaux Cave.
