Stone Age day
Bringing the Stone Age back to the future!
DELVE INTO THE STONE AGE 10am-2.30pm
We will take you on a journey through the Stone Age spanning over 3 million years. We combine history with creativity and a little humour to encourage children to learn about the Stone Age.
Our day starts with an interactive timeline and our unique ‘Show and tell’ where the children get to pass around the clothes, furs and tools of our ancestors. We even have a real mamoth tooth to pass around!
Touch, smell, even taste the Stone Age if you're brave enough!
The children then go on to take part in your 2 practical, hands-on workshops.
“Dan and Naomi are like a walking talking museum but they have removed the glass so the children get an opportunity to get up close and personal with the Primitive artefects and crafts”.
Sessions can be delivered on school grounds for an additional travel charge.
