PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Throughout most of our existence, humans have had to survive without the support of modern technologies such as cell phones, something our students can hardly imagine living without.

This activity places students in the scenario that they and their friends went hiking but got lost in the woods. How will they survive?

They will have to rely on the same strategies and methods of survival, essentially, as our ancestors did during the Stone Age.

After reading the context, students discuss and debate in their small groups how to survive in this situation. The activity takes them through five prompts, each relating to an important Stone Age concept or key term (surviving in small groups, using sticks and stones as tools and weapons, hunting and gathering / domestication, using fire, and cave-dwelling).

Students essentially teach themselves an entire lesson on how our ancestors survived in the Stone Age by imagining themselves surviving today, lost in the woods, with no cell phone to aid them.

My students loved this activity! I hope yours will too!
