In this resource, students investigate stone tools and how the properties of a stone influence its use. Students participate in two activities: Analysing Materials and The Morah Stone and Investigating Grinding.
In Analysing Materials, students justify what type of stone would be best for making different tools and analyse how the properties of a stone determine its use.
In The Morah Stone and Investigating Grinding, students learn about the morah stone and then conduct an investigation to assess the grinding potential of different materials.
