Ancient Rock Art
This is the art component of the thematic unit. It contains the art prints, classification game, timeline, and art project directions. Students will examine the art prints, classify 31 rock art images, and carve their own petroglyph on a plaster rock they make. This component works particularly well with studies of native people.
Reading & Writing in the Travel Genre
This is the language arts component of the thematic unit. It contains the student readers, vocabulary materials, "Point of Interest" cards and poster, reading and writing worksheets, and a word processing template for publication of student writings in a class Tour Guide.
