Stone Age - Quick True or False Quiz

Stone Age - Quick True or False Quiz

Using Red/Green paddles or cards, this true or false quiz was designed for use after introducing students to Mesolithic and Neolithic Stone Age people. There are some fun questions and weird facts about the period to lighten the topic a little. This quiz should only take about 5-8 minutes but it can be a good starter at the beginning of the lesson or it could be used to sum up the topic before moving on to The Bronze Age. Horrible Histories Savage Stone Age book is where the information in this quiz was compiled from.
