Uncover History: The Stone Age

Let's travel back in time to uncover the history of the Stone Age, just like an archeologist. Students will make their own interactive-notebooks to document their findings & will have the opportunity to paint like a caveperson.

Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

I am a Pennsylvania certified Social Studies teacher and I taught 6th and 7th grade Social Studies/World History. I also was a preschool teacher where I taught many subjects including history and science. I have been teaching different subjects for 8 years. I have a bachelor's degree in Social Sciences-Education from the Pennsylvania State University. This is where I took multiple researched-based classes and coursework in American History, European History, World History, Cultural Geography, and World Regional Geography.
Students will be required to assemble their interactive learning notebook before class. That way, learners can follow along with the lesson and document their findings. Students will also need to gather their art project supplies before the class. 
 1 file available upon enrollment
Students will need: *The interactive-notebook and supply list will be available a week before the class starts. • The Stone Age interactive-notebook(needs to be printed, cut, and assembled into a college-ruled note-book BEFORE class begins) • A college ruled Note-Book • Pencil • Crayons or Markers • Scissors • Glue Bottle and Glue Stick For this project you will need: • Wet Paper Towels or a Wet Cloth • Brown, Red, and Black washable paint (to finger paint with) • Construction Paper, Poster Board, or Cardstock • The Stone Age Stencil • Tape • Trash Can or Trash Bag nearby.
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
*Parents, please be advised students will need to use scissors to prepare the notebook. Scissors are an important tool to master but should be used with caution. Please ensure your learner knows how to be safe with scissors. If they are not comfortable doing so, please be ready to help them off camera and/or prepare before class. 
*Parents, please be advised we will look at the reconstructed image of Ötzi the Iceman who lived 5,300 years ago. To view the image in advance please visit: https://www.iceman.it/en/the-iceman/
The students will be able to use their knowledge of the historical period to interpret the evidence and present an informed view.
