We have just started getting into The Story of the World, Activity Book 1: Ancient Times - From the Earliest Nomad to the Last Roman Emperor. Chapter 1 is on "The Earliest People." None of the additional reading suggestions in the activity book were available at our library, but I found some others that went well with our topic.
- Prehistory: Art and Civilization
- History News: The Stone Age News
- The Secret Cave: Discovering Lascaux
- Me Hungry!
The Secret Cave is a fictional representation based on true events surrounding the discovery of the Lascaux Cave in France during WWII. The book was the perfect preparation for our activity today - making cave art! We used paper bags and some acrylic paints in the limited hues that prehistoric peoples would have had.
Seeing all that left over paint, I decided to try my hand at a little cave art as well - a newly discovered prehistoric species. Ha!
