Cave Paintings

As part of our Story of the World curriculum, our two younger children are enjoying all the hands-on activities that are presented in the supplemental activity book. Right now, we are studying the nomads of ancient Egypt and the kids learned all about the cave dwellers and how they would paint different things on the walls. We discussed what types of scenes they may have painted, and after a brief lesson on the different styles of figures they would see on the walls, they had a chance to create their own cave paintings!
They both did a great job and it is so much fun watching them work silently on their projects and really learning from what we have studied.
