Creating our own cave paintings.

This week we built on last week’s learning about cave art and we had a go at creating our own cave paintings using clay and charcoal. We looked at different images of cave art which has been discovered for ideas. We thought about why early humans created cave paintings and learned that they were created for different reasons. Sometimes to communicate with people, sometimes as a pre hunting ritual and sometimes to record events. We also discussed why these are such a valuable historic source. Check out our cave art below. What do you think?
