This unit is a collection of questions and activities to enhance your study of Justin Denzel's Boy of the Painted Cave. The study guide portion consists of short answer essay questions that focus the student on plot and character development. An answer key is included for the study guide. Vocabulary charts encourage using the context to define a word and writing prompts make connections to science and history.
I have included my Cave Art Presentation and Activity. This is an introductory power point with links to online cave art examples and a virtual tour of the famous cave at Lascaux along with a fun paint mixing activity.
