We visited Creswell Crags, a limestone gorge full of caves which were home to Neanderthals and early humans in the Ice Age. A guide took us into the caves and taught us about the tools, weapons and clothing commonly used in the Ice Age. We also saw cave spiders and a spider’s nest crammed full of dozens of spider eggs suspended from the cave’s ceiling. We learnt how to map a location using contour lines and a key. We also took part in a lesson about the theory of evolution. As part of the lesson we got to handle a human skeleton and examine a range of skulls that showed how humans have adapted over time to their environment. We had a brilliant day - it was great to get hands-on experience of many of the things we have been learning about in school.
