ACTIVITIES FOR MEDIA SPECIALISTS

Schema

Study the cover of the book, then ask students the following questions: What is the boy doing? What are the markings on the rocks? Do you think this boy is living in our time? When do you think he lived? What do you know about cave people? Did they live at the same time as the dinosaurs?


Predicting

Have the students predict how a cave boy might play. How would he create artwork? How would he make music? What would he eat?


Visualizing

Ask students to do the following exercise: Close your eyes and pretend that you are living in a cave. What would you look like? How would you dress? What would you eat? How would you get your food? What would you do for fun?
