To kick off our Stone Age History unit, year three had a full morning of fun, immersive activities to spark the children's imagination. Each classroom was set up with a different activity and the children moved through these throughout the morning.
We had cave painting, where our tables were turned on their sides and paper stuck to them to imitate cave walls. The children were taught about how and why Stone Age people painted on their caves and had a go at using their fingers and hands to create some of their own cave art.
Secondly, was a timeline activity where the children were given the task to plot points of Mrs Ahmed's life onto a timeline and then use this to inform their understanding of where the Stone Age period came in history.
Lastly, the children were confronted with samples of Stone Age poo that they were to dissect in order to discover what their diet would have been like. Things we found were egg shells, nuts, seeds, fruit and cheese.
