Students read a short article regarding new scientific findings about ancient cave art and follow a creative narrative writing prompt included on the page. This correlates really well with a literature unit on Boy of the Painted Cave and/or a Social Studies unit on the time period.
***Check out the Boy of the Painted Cave complete unit in my TPT store which includes this prompt and many other resources at a discounted bundle price! I also offer a wide variety of 6th-12th grade literature selections. Happy teaching :)
