Will they be working outside on site, or indoors on small pieces of rock?
Can they use / make ochres & charcoal, or use other found natural materials?
Do you want the results to be permanent or transitory?
Can they make drawings on the ground using found natural objects?
Will they work in groups or individually?
I used to do large scale drawings on rock faces using explosive detonator
cord, but third grade might not be up to that.
