OMG..Do they say that in France?

Lascaux

I asked a group of 5th graders to look closely at the faces of the four boys in the Lascaux Cave illustration. Then I  asked them to  think about how  the boys were feeling.  I asked the students if they  thought  as the group they could compile a list of ten words.  Surprised, wowed, scared, amazed were just a few and I added awed.

I then asked , “What do you think the boys could be saying?”  and one boy said, “Maybe the boy with the hand over his mouth is saying OMG.” Then he burst out laughing and looked at his teacher who was smiling. Another student wondered if they said OMG in France!
