This is still one of my favorite first grade lessons to teach. Students love to hear about the first art ever made and the incredible artists behind the prehistoric drawings they view in class. Check out the link to reference the directions for this lesson Cave Art Drawings and facts about prehistoric art. Please note, that this year we did not draw on painted watercolor paper, drawings were instead completed on brown craft paper.
We also read this book together, which I discovered at the public library while helping my son find a book. It was a great find and I will definitely be using it again next year for this lesson.
