UI 5 The time tunnel

Welcome to the amazing 5th Unit of Year 4. We are setting off on a journey through time.

First things first: How do we know how early humans lived? Archeaology is the key!

From archeological sites, we now know how Prehistoric hominids lived and how their lives changed over the two main periods in Prehistory: Paleolithic Age and Neolithic Age:

You will need to check out all the information about each time period, in the order we will tell you, so we can complete our Time Travel Diary:

You can find lots more information in Spanish in this link:


Your presentation for Social Science must be prepared as follows:

  1. Each member of your group picks a section out of 5:
  • Timeline and expansion maps
  • Main events of the period
  • Main personalities
  • Art and architecture
  • Culture, clothes and lifestyle
  1. Search for information and make a mindmap about your section
  2. Prepare to present the information with your mindmap, minimum reading.
  3. Recording of your presentations (we will explain how we will record them in class)

You will be assessed on your personal contribution and the average mark achieved by your group, so help each other and you will be set for success!
