This is a great worksheet to start the year off! It helps students jumpstart their brains and use their critical thinking skills again. The purpose of the worksheet is for them to work in groups and solve how cavemen hunted mammoths.
You are not looking to see if they are correct, just looking to see how the students work together to come to a conclusion based on the parameters of the worksheet.
After they explain their ways of killing the mammoth you end the lesson by telling them the true answer: the mammoths were chased off of a cliff.
My students love doing this activity!
