Year 3 history project - ‘How do tools help us to survive?’

This term we have been studying the Paleolithic, Mesolithic and the Neolithic periods of the Stone Age and the Bronze and Iron Ages. Children have researched and studied different tools and how they have contributed to the survival of the early humans. We have visited Touchstone Museum in Rochdale, with tools that we have created, to have them critiqued by a real archaeologist. We have really enjoyed learning all about the prehistoric periods of human history!

See some of our photographs below.

Creating Hot Air Balloons


Children have been reading 'Oh! The Places You'll Go!' and this has inspired creation of hot air balloons.

'Oh! The Places You'll Go!'

We are scientists! We can ask relevant questions and describe and identify the functions of different parts of flowering pants.

We are historians! We have been using artifacts to investigate how tools have changed through periods of history and how they have helped humans to survive. We then designed and created our own replica tools. We are ready to hunt!
