  • Research and paint Stone Age cave art.
  • Build Stonehenge out of any recycling materials you have.
  • Research and make Stone Age musical instruments.
  • Create a rap about Stone Age life.
  • If possible, make a presentation on life in the Stone Age.

In Science, we will be learning all about rocks. You could:

  • Learn about different layers of soil.
  • Find rocks in the garden and sort them into groups based on their physical appearance.
  • Investigate the hardness of rocks. Get different rocks from the garden and use sand paper to test their strength.
