Art in Prehistory 

Activity Overview

A creative journey through a million years of Prehistory Art. The day includes all materials and three artefacts that your pupil will making ready to take home with them.

  • Introduction to the different periods of the Stone Age (Neolithic, Mesolithic and Palaeolithic) and Prehistory (Stone, Bronze and Iron)

Trading has two parts:

  • Part 1: your class will swap real artefacts as they role play as characters and use numerical problem solving in the trading game
  • Part 2: your pupils will enjoy trading by swapping their pocket money for Celtic gold coins to trade for the more precious produce in the shop
