The Stone Age
Bringing History to Life Beyond the Classroom
History would have been impossible without pre-history, and pre-history is far more than a mere pre-amble to the main show. It was during prehistory that Britain acquired its languages, landscape and regional identities.
What might the day include?
The emphasis is on having FUN, using artefacts, role-play, and games to teach history in an engaging and meaningful way. A day in the Stone Age can include some or all of these topics:
o When was the Stone Age: exploring our timeline on Earth;
o “Walking on two legs”: the evolution of humans;
o What was life like in the Stone age?
o How and why life changed for Stone Age people;
o Could you be a hunter-gatherer: the importance of hunting for Stone Age people;
o What was the Stone Age diet like?
o The making of tools and weapons;
o The first artists;
o Death, burial and the afterlife;
o Monumental builders: how and why places like Stonehenge were built?
