Exploring Cave Art

Kindergarten children went spelunking through darkened caves, carrying their torches, and ended up discovering art on the wall.... the SmartBoard wall, that is!  We took a virtual tour, pretending to explore the cave of Lascaux, France. 

As you can imagine, students couldn't wait to begin drawing like cave artists.
 The rest is history!

The next week I used watered tempera paint in a spray bottle to stencil their hand shape, while children worked collaboratively under the tables, pretending to draw on cave ceilings. 

***Disclaimer: I wouldn't attempt this dual activity without the patient assistance of our kindergarten aids, for which I'm extremely grateful: )
