I came across an interesting post in my art education group at yahoo. (you can join this group by request by visiting here.)
The post referred to a photoshop/computer graphics project and you can see it here.
It is in Japanese but you will get the drift of it from the photos. I think it is a pretty ambitious lesson for 5th graders-at least judging by the 4th graders we work with. Pretty cool though and very Japanese.

The lesson also contains some great links to learning sites revolving around subject of Stonehenge, stone circles, dolmens, ancient standing stones, cairns, barrows, hillforts and archaeology.

The jist of the project is to consider creating a sculpture garden at your school site. The lesson calls for the students to create a Stone Circle sculpture digitally and insert it into a pre-existing photograph.

The Japanese text is also pretty simple. I think it would also make a good lesson for Japanese language students by practicing how to follow instructions written in Japanese at a 5th grade level.
