Living The Prehistoric Life
This week we have been living the life of prehistoric man. First the children cooked a very early type of bread. This was made from flour mixed with water to make a dough. We baked ours in the oven but prehistoric man would have cooked his on the open fire.
Today we built a simple shelter. Unfortunately we didn't have any mammoth skins to hand so our shelter is a bit more colourful than the original would have been. Once it was built the children played inside and also hunted for mammoths and sabre tooth cats. Guess who had to play the part of the mammoth!
This weekend we are going camping for real (in a slightly better shelter) and we will have the chance to cook meat over the open fire just like prehistoric man did.
