Time Travel to the Stone Age Workshop
Stone Age Workshop From Wicked Workshops
We're on a Time Trip to the Stone Age with Stone Age Workshop. Join us with your students! Discover what life was really like trying to survive and thrive in the land that time forgot! Our epic explorers have invented the time machine. They travelled to the Stone Age and now they are eager to share their findings in this interactive workshop.
What Would You Learn in Stone Age Workshop?
So how long ago was the Stone Age? How long have we known about Fire? When did we first start to cook? Did man always wear clothes? We will let your students discover all that and more in the creation of our giant interactive time travel line. Filled with facts and fun this timeline will allow the students to utilise their drama and performance skills. Furthermore, their historical knowledge will expand as we travel back in time millions of years.Your students will then get the chance to meet their ancestors... and even become them! Learning all about the skills of Homo Habilis, Erectus and Sapien. What were their differences and how did they evolve. They will find out what is Australopithecus and can you even pronounce it? (It's a Southern Ape by the way - one of man's earliest ancestors)Why do we call Stone Age "Stone Age"? (because of the Stone Tools of course) our adventurers have brought a genuine pot boiler stone from the neolithic period for your students to examine and they'll show you how it worked and give you the chance to try boiling water the cave man way (It's not as easy as it looks)Can you guess which tooth fossil belongs to which mammal? We have a genuine Mammoth tooth fossil and Cave Bear tooth and replicas of a Sabre Tooth Tiger Skull and Mastadon tooth for your students to interact with.
Our Stone Age Workshop
We'll discover all about our true ancestors. How did Stone Age Britain come to be an island? Why do we have a mammoth to thank for being at school today and was it the melting of ice or something else that turned Britain into an Island. Your students will be able to help us tell this interactive tale that brings to life the story of Stone Age Britain.Your students will be able to question the adventurers about their Stone Age discoveries, absolutely any question can be asked and our prehistoric experts will be able to answer it.Finally, our explorers will put the students to the test with some tricky questions. Will they be able to uncover the bizarre historical facts hidden within the weird historical fiction?Once the workshop finished it will be time to travel back to school but what an adventure we will have had!
