Free Stone Age to Iron Age
School Teacher Resources

Hello,

Welcome to the Prehistoric Experiences teacher's resources part of our website. After delivering experiences to hundreds of schools and 10'000's of thousands of children we have learnt that there is a strong need for teacher's resources before experiences to help the children have a basic knowledge of the subject matter.  AND after an experience to help reinforce and solidify the learning that has taken place after an experience or towards the end of a topic. 

We thought we would further support our great customers by preparing some extremely awesome resources which can be used either at the beginning of a topic or after, with hopefully one of our experiences being thrown into the mix also.

If you are not a customer of ours please do not worry, we are more than happy for you to use these resources too!! We only ask that you tell others about us and share what we do in your teaching collectives and on social media profiles if you have them.  Which we feel is a fair deal.

 Documents and Worksheets

We have prepared a number of great documents and worksheets for you to use in your learning.  

- Learn about the prehistoric timeline

- Colour in pictures of Stone Age life

- Learn about tools, weapons, art, people, and homes

- Listen to readings of The Wolf Brother

- Make Stone Age sculptures and jewellery

- Complete our Creative writing printable sheets

When you are done be sure to download the survival skills page and learn about all the uses of animals.

 

We recommend starting with the teacher's guide which is a 9-page walkthrough of learning and activities from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.

 Whilst you are here...

...we would love to quickly introduce to you our Stone Age School visits

 

We have been teaching children about the Stone Age for over 7 years and all of our staff are Stone Age experts which can actually use the skills we teach to survive in the wild.

Below are the fantastic experiences we offer to schools.
