KS2 Stone Age Vocabulary - illustrated

(0)
A collection of 55 terms relating to Archaeology and the Palaeolithic (Old Stone Age). Based on the content of our live KS2 learning workshops, which address the 2014 National Curriculum statutory unit “Changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.” The Old Stone Age is the starting point against which other changes can be most successfully measured, as it was a lengthy pre-agricultural period of nomadic hunter-gatherers, spanning around 99.5% of our history. Supported by unique and original images including real and replica artefacts, each term has a carefully-researched definition added, based on our specialist knowledge of this period and our experience of teaching about it. Pairs of terms are presented in A4 landscape format ready for printing, and laminating if required. This resource is guaranteed FREE of second-hand clip art cartoons featuring stereotypical images of club waving cavemen in fur nappies, and aims to knock the somewhat unhelpful Flintstones image squarely on the head. Can be used for display, reference, or matching exercises, by children in the classroom or for in-school staff INSET. Available for download in .pdf format. For non-commercial educational use and display. Text and images creative copyright 10,000 Years BC
