TIME TRAVEL TO THE STONE AGE CONTENT

Join our epic time-travelling explorers as they reveal their findings on their latest adventure to the Stone Age!

So how long ago was the Stone Age? Filled with facts and fun our interactive timeline will allow the students to utilise their drama and performance skills along with furthering their historical knowledge as we travel back in time millions of years.

Time to meet our ancestors... and even become them! Learning all about the skills of Homo Habilis, Erectus and Sapien. What were their differences and how did they evolve? What is Australopithecus and can you even pronounce it? (It's a Southern Ape by the way - one of man's earliest ancestors)

Why was the Stone Age called the Stone Age? (because of the Stone Tools of course) our adventurers have brought a genuine pot boiler stone from the Neolithic period for your students to examine and they'll show you how it worked and give you the chance to try boiling water the caveman way (It's not as easy as it looks!)

How big was a Woolly Mammoth? What other uses were there for a Glyptodon after it was dead? Why you didn't need to be that scared of a Cave Bear and just how terrifyingly toothy was a Sabre Toothed Tiger? Through interactive games, the practitioners will demonstrate just how large these megafauna were and why they're not still walking the planet today!

Can you guess which tooth fossil belongs to which mammal? We have a genuine Mammoth tooth fossil and Cave Bear tooth and replicas of a Sabre Tooth Tiger Skull and Mastodon tooth for your students to interact with.

Your students will be able to question the adventurers about their Stone Age discoveries, absolutely any question can be asked and our prehistoric experts will be able to answer it.

Finally, our explorers will put the students to the test with some tricksy questions. Will they be able to uncover the bizarre historical facts hidden within the weird historical fiction?

​ Once the workshop is done it will be time to travel back to school but what an adventure we will have had!
