Have you been in touch with EH's Heritage Schools initiative. We've done various things within that project including a couple of prehistoric based activities, although these were outside walkabout style things with storytellers etc.
Let me know if you want further rdetails.

Subject: Prehistory Teaching Resources for Schools
I'm hoping that some of you might be abel to help - we're just starting to work on a project with a local charitable trust here, looking at trying to create a range of teaching resources for schools, that they can use when teaching the new Prehistory curriculum (for Key Stages 1 -3, which is everything before the start of GCSE's).
We've been having a look around and have managed to find a lot of good resources already available online, that we can use to model our own on (eg. there's a lot of good material on English Heritage's 'Heritage Explorer' website, and links to a lot of intersting projects and collections on the Arts Council & CEPG's 'Cultural Resources for Schools' website - www.heritage-explorer.co.uk and www.nfer.ac.uk/CulturalEducationResources if you want to have a look!)
We were really just wondering if any of you had been involved in a similar project recently, and whether you could offer any advice about how your projects went - about what worked well and engaged the students, and also what funding streams (if any!) you had managed to access or knew about?
Any advice or suggestions you could make would be very gratefully received!

PS. Despite having worked in various HER roles for the last 6 years, this is my first ever posting to the HER Forum, so I'll offer a belated hello to you all, and thank you for all the interesting discussions that I've followed! (but not actually engaged in! - Sorry!)
