Early Man Interdisciplinary Unit
With the awarding of this grant, sixth graders will take part in an interdisciplinary study of human origins across the curriculum. As students investigate the Paleolithic and Neolithic era in Social Studies, they will read a fictional account of a twelve year old Cro-Magnon (early homosapien) boy named Tao in the novel, Boy of the Painted Cave. Students will differentiate between hominid groups while becoming acquainted with the arts, culture and civilization of early man. The grant will allow teachers to purchase copies of that novel, Lascaux Cave Books for each classroom and cave painting art supplies.
