Inside the Classroom: Grade 6 Social Studies

During an imaginative classroom activity, sixth graders in social studies recreated cave art painted by prehistoric people 30,000 – 60,000 years ago. Lying underneath their desks-turned-caves and armed with flashlights, students depicted animals, hunting scenes, people and outlines of their hands.

“They were able to pretend their colored pencils were sharp tools and their desks were rocks while they etched scenes of hunting expeditions, similar to their Paleolithic ancestors,” said Sarah Burke Man, a sixth grade faculty member. “It was super experiential for them and so fun to see them happy and learning at the same time.”
