We became Stone Age people and went into the forest hunting and gathering different foods.
We went into the forest and searched for cards displaying different Stone Age food. Then we went back to class with our cards and sorted the cards into food that would be hunted and food that would be gathered. We learned that certain foods were only available at certain times of the year. We discussed how Stone Age people would know what food they should eat and when it was ready. Some of the plants that were gathered were used for different purposes such as tea, soup and medicine. They also used the animals they hunted and killed for lots of different purposes too, including the hides for clothing and bones for tools. Towards the end of the Neolithic period Stone Age people started to grow crops, keep cattle and develop farms.
