We started our the school year in 3rd grade with clay in the second week. During our cave art unit, we looked at cave paintings and cave carvings. This was a simply project done in one day. We squished a ball of clay into a pancake shape and used a pointy stick to carve in our drawings. We looked at prehistoric figures found in many famous caves to inspire our work.
When they dried, we painted them with natural colors of tempera paint and hung them up.
