4 Awesome Stone Age Activities for History Teachers!
Today I’m sharing some fun ideas and resources for 6th grade teachers planning their Ancient Civilizations Unit.
With these resources for history teachers, you’ll instantly have a complete plan for a fun, engaging, and rigorous Stone Age unit!
Use these cross-curricular activities to help your students develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills while they learn about early hunter-gatherer societies.
Here’s what other teachers are saying about these activities:
“My students found this activity to be very engaging and had fun testing out their baskets. I loved the critical thinking aspect and the after reflection questions.” – Kelly F.
“So fun. Supplies were easy to send home, and the activity was engaging as well. Fit my Social Studies unit well, and helped me to engage my students in the engineering/design process.” -Jillayne T.
I LOVE teaching with Interactive Notebooks. Pick up these premade notebooks and you’ll instantly have your activities for the whole unit organized.
You can print these out or use them 100% digitally with Google Slides. That means that these notebooks are perfect whether you’re teaching in-person, in a hybrid environment, OR completely remote!

“These history interactive workbooks are an absolute staple for my sons home education! This one was as fantastic as I had hoped, It is in depth and covers everything you need to know about the stone age. My son thoroughly enjoyed doing this workbook, we used several books and reading resources along with it and my son found the layout and different sections very engaging. We look forward to using similar resources!” – Roseanna J.
