The Secret Cave: Discovering Lascaux
For kids 6 to 12 years old
In 1940, four teenage boys discovered an ancient treasure, the prehistoric cave at Lascaux in the south of France, and brought to the modern world the more than 2,000 vibrant paintings and engravings perfectly preserved on its walls for nearly 17,000 years.
Participants will create their own cave drawings, learn about the multitudes of natural structures that form in caves over tens of thousands of years, take a video tour of the cave at Lascaux, and most importantly, learn the difference between a stalagmite and a stalactite!
