I have my second graders use neutral colored pastels to create "cave paintings" on brown butcher wrap paper. After work is fixed, student wad the paper to create a rock/cave effect. Their drawing skills are sophisticated enough to be recognizable animals but are still simplistic, which works with the drawings of the Lascaux cave. The lesson can become more involved with students creating their own painting tools or having a refridgerator box as your "cave"

  I'm realiziing that for my second grade classes I have been doing toned down third grade lessons. They're successful with them, and it works well, but I won't be able to do those lessons next year when they'd be even more successful. Who has tips on where second graders are as far as their skills and abilities, as well as any projects specifically designed for second graders? I seem to be able to distinguish the needs and abilities of my other grades, but second grade is not as clear to me. Thanks!
