This project is a hands-on experience for students to understand what the diet was like during the Paleolithic Era. While the “Paleo Diet” has gained popularity, it’s not necessarily how our ancestors ate. This project accomplishes two things- One, it helps students understand that a diet during this time was very limited because each recipe contains items that were available to hunters/gatherers only. This reinforces exactly what the Paleolithic Era was like. And two, it helps students connect this knowledge to content outside the classroom and because of what they know, they can analyze the authenticity of current ideas. Used with success in 10th grade World History class.
