Stone Age Planning

A fully-resourced unit of 10 history lessons for KS2, covering the Stone Age to Iron Age topic. This KS2History planning pack includes 10 detailed lessons plans, each with accompanying pupil resource sheets and Powerpoint slides.
The ten sessions in this unit aim to give an overview of the period from the Stone Age to the Iron Age in Britain and to highlight some of the major changes during this period. There is an emphasis on allowing pupils to consider the sources of evidence that form our understanding of this period of British history.

The aims of the unit for pupils are:

  • To gain an overview of the major changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age
  • To consider how we know about a historical period without written sources
  • To research what it might have been like to live in Britain during this period

This pack contains everything you need to teach this unit, including differentiated activity ideas so that it can be adapted to the needs of your class. The Powerpoint text is also editable.

The planning pack covers the following lessons:

  1. What does prehistory mean?
  2. How did hunter-gatherers survive in the Stone Age?
  3. What was Stone Age cave art?
