*stone "rock" your students can carve into a bowl
*a replica of the "Blombos Stone"
*a replica of a stone carved with cupules
*several stones for your students to carve on
*Museum Display Cards, patterned after museum information plaques
Museum activities included are:
*Continental Tracing Maps
*Go Fish Game, which matches a piece of rock art with the country and continent where it is found
