    On Paper

    Use a gray or tan, sturdy paper such as construction paper.  Crumple it, and then flatten it out to give it the uneven surface of a cave wall.  Use crayon, charcoal, or oil pastels to draw animals and signs/symbols in the style of the prehistoric cave painters.  You should use colors that the cave painters used.  Keep the artwork proportional.  Remember how large the animals were in comparison to the handprints.

    Be sure to label your project.  Include your name and student number.

    In a Box

    Use a shoebox or other small box.  Crumple paper to make uneven "cave walls".  Line the inside of the box with the paper.  Make your cave art-style drawings in crayon, charcoal, or oil pastels before gluing them in place.  Use colors that the real cave painters used.  Add miniature artifacts that would have been left in the cave.  Keep the artwork and artifacts proportional.  Remember how large the animals were in comparison to the handprints.
    Be sure to label your project.  Include your name and student number.

    On the Computer

    Use a multimedia program to create a virtual tour of an imaginary cave.  Use the websites you visited as examples.  Be sure to make a background that looks like a cave wall.  You must use the draw/paint tools to create original artwork using colors the cave painters would have used.  Keep the artwork proportional.  Remember how large the animals were in comparison to the handprints. (DO NOT cut and paste other people's artwork onto yours!)
