Cave Art with Kindergarten

On Monday the kindergarteners and I talked about cave art and how stone-age artists used their artwork to communicate messages to others. Here are a few things they noticed and learned about cave art:

-Cave artists may have used art to communicate messages or stories to others.

- They painted animals they probably hunted or saw every day.

-The colors they used were black, brown, red, and yellow because those were the colors they could make from the earth.

-Cave artists usually signed their work with their hand print.

Then the group made their own cave art:

From left to right: Calei, Greer, Koray, Lily, and Thomas. PS: Calei said the message she is trying to communicate to others is “I love my dog at home.”
