- colored chalk, oil pastel crayons, or colored charcoal sticks
- After the presentation, students are presented with one of two scenarios:
If people discover your art 1,000 years from now, what would you want them to learn about you? Draw symbols, pictures, colors, numbers, and pictures to represent you.
If you lived 10,000 years ago, draw an activity or animal that would have represented you.
STEP 1: Students write their name on the back of their stone.
STEP 2: Students draw their art on the front surface of their stones using chalk, charcoal, or oil pastel crayons
STEP 3: (Optional:) MTM presenter sprays or paints each surface of the finished stones with polyurethane once the stones are taken home.
