A special day project for Key Stage 2, based in your classroom.
Use archaeological investigative skills to discover this period of pre-history. Illustrated with local Warwickshire sites and replica objects. Significant changes between each period are focused on in the workshop.
This workshop includes:
- The changes in the stone age diet as farming developed
- The introduction of roundhouses in the Bronze Age
- The opportunity to handle replica objects from the Warwickshire museum collections.
- Being archaeologists and ‘examining’ the remains of a roundhouse.
The workshop lasts 4.5 hours and runs from 9.30am – 3.00pm, fitting within your own school day. It also requires the use of the class projector throughout the day.
Pupils will be able to practise skills in :
- Chronological understanding – place the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages in chronological order. Place them in a timeline of British history.
- Change and continuity – discuss the significant changes between each of the time periods.
- Significance – explain the changes and developments that occurred during this period.
- Cause and consequence – understand the development of technology and the impact this had.
- Interpretation – use objects and scientific evidence to identify characteristics of the different time periods.
- Historic enquiry – comparing/contrasting information, identifying and analysing evidence
- Use of resource – use of different archeaological and historical sources.
