Feeding Stonehenge (Primary Resources)

This resource provides six activities to teach science at primary level, whilst also learning about the Stone Age. The activities have been created using evidence from scientists and archaeologists working at sites close to Stonehenge, so are a great way of showing how scientific skills and knowledge can be used to find out how people lived in the past. Activities link to learning about teeth, a balanced diet, the digestive system and working scientifically, all set in the context of the  Stone Age.  They may be used when learning about Stone Age, or when learning about teeth, food and diet. The resources are based upon the archaeological finds at Stonehenge and nearby sites, which have been used to find out more about the lives of the people who lived in these times. The resources are:

  • Working like a Scientist
  • Food and Diet
  • Healthy Diet
  • Tremendous Teeth
  • The Human Digestive System
  • Making Cheese

This resource has been produced by STEM learning, in collaboration with the University of York, Cardiff University and English Heritage. The resources have been funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, (AHRC) follow-on fund.
