Stone Age teaching resources from the UK’s museums

A virtual Stone Age
We love Virtually The Ice Age, the online learning resource from Creswell Crags (see photo above), where pupils can discover more about the Stone Age, including: Stone Age people, archaeology and excavation techniques, and the natural world.

Don’t miss Could You have Survived The Ice Age? section with a quiz and more info about Stone Age art, camp sites and the tools Stone Age people used. Great images used too.

The latest is a National Museums Scotland make your own wolf mask activity
