Stone Henge

When I was in school and we learned about Stonehenge, it seemed very interesting, but so distant.

Your students can experience a bit stonehenge for themselves by experimenting like at Imagine Childhood with sticks and bricks and they can also learn a little physics along the way. The task is to make a post and lintel arch out of mini stone monoliths, or garden pavers, without actually picking them up with their hands and in the process they will learn about fulcrums and levers, wedges and counterweights, simple machines and reducing friction.


And when you are done playing and learning, That Artist Woman has a wonderful art project with a stone henge theme, which might appeal to your students.

Or, perhaps making a little model of Stonehenge...directions at Little Acorns.
