Let’s learn more about how to make fire!

We are going to make a set of instructions on how to make fire by striking flint.

Always supervise children when they are on YouTube.

Amazing right!

You can fill in the last column with the rest of the sentence.

Activity 2

Start by completing the sheet. Write a sentence for each picture describing what’s happening. Use a different ADVERB from the top of the sheet for each sentence.


Example: The cat silently watched the mouse.

Now read the next pages of The Stone Age Boy.

I wonder what the characters we can see in the book would be thinking?

I filled in the thoughts of the characters on page 18. (See below)

Right now it’s your turn. Can you fill in the thought bubbles for page 19?


  • Put yourself in the characters’ position to understand what they are thinking.
  • Write in full sentences.

Thinking about the pages we have read today and thinking back to earlier in the story. Answer the  2 questions on the first worksheet and the 2 from the second worksheet below. I have included some sentence starters for you.

Activity 3

Start by completing the sheet. For each picture change the word to put it in the past tense.


Example: add = added

Let’s think back in our story to where the boy is happy and going hunting.

Can you use SHOW DON’T TELL to show the reader that he is happy.

Think about his facial expression, his body language, his heart rate.



As he grasped his spear tight with excitement, he smiled from ear to ear as he followed the rest of the group.
