History - The Stone Age
This term our Topic is The Stone Age. I have attached the Knowledge Organiser for this topic for you to see what we will be covering.
This week we are learning about the timeline of The Stone Age. Please read this PowerPoint which explains what chronology is and how long ago The Stone Age was. As you go through the pages, there are tasks for you to think about, please have a go at them before moving on to the next page.
Today's task involves placing some events from The Stone Age into chronological order. I have attached two sets of cards - one is easier and one is harder - and your job is to sort the events on the cards into the correct chronological order.
Don't worry if you can't print the cards off - just write the events and dates in your book in the correct order.
The answers are included in the documents - please try to complete the activity without looking.
Tip - when dates are BC or BCE, the bigger the number, the longer ago it was.
I've attached a PowerPoint for you to look through which explains the types of food that were eaten in this period of time.
Attached below is a survival guide, it shows you the types of food that can be found in different seasons. Print or copy the seasons wheel and draw or write the foods in the correct season.
At the end of the power point, it suggests that you could try stewing up some fruit with some honey like the stone age people would have done. As an extra activity, you could have a go at stewing some fruit.Soft fruits would work, but apples and pears peeled and chopped would also work. Have a go at this if only if your parents have some suitable fruit at home and they say that it is ok.
We are continuing our learning about Stone Age food this week.
Last week you learned that during this time people were hunter gatherers and ate a variety of different foods, some of which are the same as we eat now - maybe we just eat it in a different way!
Your task for this week is to try and find some of the foods that would be 'gathered' if you go on a walk this week.
The above sheet you used last week tells you what grows at different times of year - so it gives you some help in knowing what to look for.
You could take pictures of whatever you find and put them in your Portfolio on ClassDojo.
For the last 3 weeks, you have been learning about the types of food that were eaten by people during The Stone Age. This week I'd like you to put together all the things that you have learned and create a 3 course meal that could have been eaten during that time. I'd also like you to show the contrast by including what your ideal 3 course meal would be. As with any menu, your challenge is to make the food on there sound appealing!
I've attached some sample menus and a word mat with adjectives that you can use to describe food to help you create some enticing descriptions.
You can print my template or design your own menu.
We have learned a lot about Stone Age food and how the people gathered edible plants and made tools and weapons to hunt for animals. This week please have a look at the BBC Bite size lesson on Prehistoric Britain by following the link below. There are videos to watch and images to click on that will help you to learn about how we know about things that happened such a long time ago.
