BEAVERCREEK — Beavercreek High School students in Ellen Spence’s French IV and V classes recently re-created the world-famous prehistoric cave paintings in Lascaux, France as part of their linguistic and cultural studies of the country.

The students worked in “tribes” to create their project, and used authentic materials, such as bacon fat, honey, spices and ash, to create their paints. Research, planning, creation of artwork, and presentations of finished products took place entirely in French, and students adopted a variety of roles, from hunters, gatherers, planters, healers or warriors, as they shared what they had learned about the paintings and context associated with them.
