The First Drawing by Mordicai Gerstein

Imagine you were born before the invention of drawing, more than 30,000 years ago.
You would live with your whole family in a cave and see woolly mammoths walk by! You might even see images of animals hidden in the shapes of clouds and rocks. You would want to share these pictures with your family, but wouldn’t know how. Who would have made the world’s first drawing? Would it have been you?

After watching the video, perhaps you could create your own cave painting. What could you draw that would be an important part of your life today? Remember - no words, only pictures!
