Year 3's trip to Harlow Museum and Gardens
Today Year 3 walked to the Harlow Museum and Gardens to participate in group activities surrounding their learning of the Stone Age.
During the trip the children were able to:
Dig for fossils using tools similar to archaeologists:
Then, as archaeologists, they recorded where they had found their fossils using a grid sheet.
Look at maps of Harlow and begin to understand its geological features:
The children looked at maps to learn that Harlow was completely covered by water during pre-historical times.
Remember the fossilisation process and explore the fossils that have been discovered in Harlow:
The children learnt that the fossils discovered in Harlow were all creatures that lived in the water.
Explore Stone Age tools:
The children learnt about the tools and how these were used by Stone Age people.
Play a Stone Age board game:
Through this game the children learnt what life in the Stone Age would have been like and how important food, clothing, shelter and fire were during that period.
