What do humans need? Do they need art and why?

Explorer  Cave  How do we protect this special place?  Sharing our findings without spoiling the space   

UNESCOs protection of the Vesere Valley. 



The project will start with a narrative around an explorer who has discovered a new cave. The children will interview the explorer about this cave before, together, going on an expedition to discover what hides within. The children will then be left with the dilemma whether they should share their findings with the world or keep it a secret to protect the special place. 

The learning journey then moves on to learning about the stone age where the children will learn about what life was like then, creating a day in the life of the stone age character, Otzi. They will be learning about where the stone age came in using a timeline and learn new vocabulary like prehistory and chronology. The children will also learn about early communication and how this has changed over time.   

Finally, children will take all their learning about the stone age and communication to become experts in these areas. They will create their own stone-age exhibition, based on what they learned. They will also consider how art and identify has changed from the stone to today. The local community will be invited to see this.
