Les grottes de Lascaux

In history class, the CE2 is studying prehistory and the very famous caves of Lascaux.

  Lascaux is the setting of a complex of caves in southwestern France famous for its Paleolithic cave paintings. The original caves are located near the village of Montignac, in the department of Dordogne.

 The students learned how the caves were discovered, why there are paintings on the walls and what they represent. The children worked in groups to create their own posters.
