IPC - Scavengers and Settlers

T-CR-657623-scavengers-settlers

THE BIG IDEA

Humans are special. Unlike other animals, we can adapt and learn new skills in order to survive, which is exactly what our ancestors did in the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages. 

ENTRY POINT 18.4.18

The museum came to school for a workshop called THE MYSTERY OF PREHISTORY. We: 

  • Considered the impact the changing environment had on tools, food and clothes from the prehistory period.
  • Explored the transitions from the Stone Age to the Bronze Age and then the Iron Age.
  • Compared materials and made decisions about the changes and continuity.

We had a FANTASTIC day at Go Ape. We showed resilience, tried things out of our comfort zone and coached each other to keep going!

We have been writing letters to Go Ape to say thank you for our incredible school trip. We drafted them, then typed them up on the computer. Here we are posting them!
