How do you tell if a stone you find is an ancient stone tool or just a rock? This video might help you decide.
Do you want to try making your own stone tools or just see how it's done? This video will show you how early humans shaped stones into useful tools.
Always ask a grownup before trying this and be careful! Rocks can be sharp!
Early humans in the Stone Age were the first to make jewelry. They often used animal bones and teeth. Make your own stone-age necklace with salt dough!
Salt Dough Recipe:
A cup of flour
Half a cup of salt
Half a cup of water
What You Do:
Mix the flour & salt in a bowl, add the water and mix until it forms a dough. Add a little more flour if it’s sticky.
Form the dough into tooth and bone shapes.
Use a thick straw to make a hole through each one
Put the bone shapes on a plate and microwave 3-4 minutes depending on size, turning them over every minute.
Let cool, then thread the bones onto garden string or natural colored wool.
Wear your stone-age necklace!
