With this social studies lesson plan, Stone Age your first graders will have an opportunity to travel back in time. Using a prehistoric-era film such as The Croods, children will observe the setting, characters' actions, and food they are eating. Young learners are introduced to the history of the caveman and how they used animal skins for clothing, discovered fire, painted the walls of their caves, and more! Then, using a table and butcher paper, kids will transform into cave people and crawl into and paint the "walls" of their "caves."
Students will be able to understand how people lived in the Stone Age.
