Early stone tools were used to make weapons for fighting, hunting, and fishing, scraping and cleaning animal hides, drilling, engraving, carving wood. Stone tools were also used to make clothing, transport such as boats, shelter, and decorative art. From this activity, they have enhanced their knowledge and learned that archaeologists have found many stone tools all over the world. Children were involved in various activities related to the concept. They have explored the way by which these different tools were used and also tried to see how these tools can be used in the present.

“Learning is the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience.”

They classified animals who live on the ground, on trees, and under the ground. For this activity, students were provided with a table where the names of animals were jumbled up. They had to write their correct names and put a tick where the animal makes its home and how it moves. While doing this project, they came to know about different animals' characteristics, which enabled them to evolve animals. They all participated with full fervour and had factual hands-on learning.
