I made a cave book for my kiddo while we were studying the Stone Age. Pretty soon I'll be sharing our history lessons from Story of the World, but I wanted to share this now since there's a lot of other uses for this little book, especially during this season. The center is designed to be cut out revealing a picture on a second page. Subsequent pages could be used using these two pages again.
You could use this book to make a story or non-fiction book about...
- Caves (of course)
- Cave Art
- The Stone Age
- David and Saul's Encounter in the Cave (1 Samual 24)
- Platos Cave Allegory
Here's what my son did with it for the stone age (we are adding more pictures...actully not finished...but you can see the cover and the first page through the hole we cut in the center. If I were to do this again I would have the second page be black construction paper and then have my son use light colored crayons to draw on top of it.
You could also shrink the size of this (easy to do in printer settings) and use this as part of a lapbook.
You are free to use this cave printable however you would like in your homeschool or for classroom or other educational or play use. If you want to use it commercially, or make alterations and share it for free, see additional terms at the bottom of this page.

My Favorite Cave Non-Fiction Book
We did whole unit on caves lasting several weeks using this book as our spine last year after visiting a nearby cavern (really, it would be more ideal for reading BEFORE going as it has several activities to do inside a cave, but it worked great as a follow up too). I'll be sharing that unit eventually but it's going to take some time to write down.
The book is beautifully written and illustrated, and chalk full of great information, activities, and experiments to do. It encourages kids to look at one small square of a cave thoroughly...thus the name. This is one of a series of various other environments (backyard, forest, pond, jungle, african savana, etc.).
