Investigating sources

Today in our Topic lesson we continued to look at the Stone Age. We discussed how we knew so much even though there was no writing to study. We discussed what a source was and how it could give us information.

Each table was given a mixture of objects; some very old, some familiar and some unusual. The children had to look and study the sources, discuss what they could learn from them and then finally sketch and annotate one.

The children really enjoyed questioning where they were from, what they were and what they were used for.
