Workshop outline

The historical concept of continuity and change runs through the workshop.

The children will be challenged with tasks that give them the opportunity to discuss their opinions about the lives of people in other times.

This exciting story world adventure takes the children into an electronic game where they must prove their knowledge of each level (Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age) to progress in the game. Children will explore what people ate, the homes they lived in, the tools they used and the skills they deployed in each era.

This workshop includes many activities that allow students to handle original and replica objects from the Stone Age, Iron Age and Bronze Age and engage in activities in role as game players.
