Year 3 Archaeologists

Following our recent History trip to Creswell Crags, Year 3 have been perfecting their archaeology skills with the Handling Boxes loaned to us.

Each drawer contained a different object that would have been found in the Stone Age and the children had to spend time making detailed observations about the size, colour and material the object would have been made out of. They then had to interpret what the object would have been used for, how it was made, what the object actually is and if we have anything similar to the object today.

    

Finally, the studies were completed by using the Fact Cards provided to see how accurate our reports were. It is clear we have some very enthusiastic historians and promising little archaeologists!
