Stone Age Rockin’ Research!

Today we put our archaeology caps back on and developed our enquiry questions of the Stone Age artefacts we have been studying in class, collating all of our questions together. We researched the artefacts using a range of internet sources to find out as much as we could about them, before putting our professor caps on to formally present our findings to others,

Class 9 – which artefact were you researching? What did you find out? Did you find anything surprising?
