Students are given an excerpt from a Washington Post article about the preservation attempts of the Lascaux cave art. A creative persuasive letter writing prompt is included on the handout. This prompt goes will with a literature unit on the novel Boy of the Painted Cave and/or a Social Studies unit on the same 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 :)
