My cave drawings

Description

I would like the students to create cave wall drawings.

Objective

Students will learn the value of expressing their thoughts through the use of stones and paint. They will learn that it is more difficult to accurately express themselves when they are trying to paint a drawing that depicts something from their daily life when others have no idea what they are trying to say.

Materials

Nice smooth rocks. Paint. Paintbrushes. Photos of actual cave drawing and other ancient drawings.

Other Information

I have completed this lesson a couple times in my history class using markers and paper. I believe the students would enjoy it more using an actual rock and paint. Then having someone decode their message.
