Stone Age Man: 

The Blueprint for Society (KS1-2)


Workshop 1 – Massive Megaliths

In this completely unique 2-part session, students examine the period of stone-circle building and explore some of the reasons our ancestors built them.

  • In small groups, they then construct their very own miniature ‘Stonehenge’ in the classroom representing beliefs that were important to our ancient ancestors.

  • After sharing their construction with the rest of the class, they move outside or to the hall to construct a life-size Stone Henge using ancient transporting and lifting technologies!


Workshop 2 – Harmonious Hunters

In only the way that RtC Educate can deliver, this session explores the tools, skills and wildlife our Ancestors would have hunted with.

  • Chase the Mammoth! Students will play some simple hunting games to learn the skills needed for hunting in groups

  • With real children sized spears, the young people will learn how to handle this most ancient tool safely and effectively

  • Utilising the ultimate ancient hunting weapon, children use bows and arrows to hunt our 3D targets to bring home the food!


Workshop 3 – Stone-Age Skills

With a range of Stone Age tools and techniques, students try to master a host of everyday prehistoric skills.
