Native American Pictographs
Pictographs are prehistoric rock or cave paintings, made by Native Americans, and found throughout the United States.
These pictures are believed to have been made for various reasons—to commemorate the site of a hunt, to mark clan territory or sacred places, describe tribal myths, or to record special events which may have taken place such as a wedding.
Fourth graders studied Native American Pictographs, and made their own stories and cave paintings to go along with them.
