This interactive book takes children on a tour through the prehistoric world from 800,000 BC in the Palaeolithic to the Roman invasion in 43 AD. Engaging activity sheets encourage children to investigate tools and technology, home and habitat, circles of stone and prehistoric art. Simply hover a tablet or phone over the pages to watch a long extinct giant elk prowl across the land or explore a 3D Stonehenge. This series really does bring history to life!
There are 9 ActiveWorksheets in this book. Each ActiveWorksheet develops a different primary history curriculum theme such as early farmers or art and culture. The ActiveWorksheets can be photocopied, and the trigger images will even work in black and white.
The book includes a step-by-step teacher guide and a range of extension activities. There are also simple resource sheets to compliment the extension activities.
Alongside this book are 2 free apps for Android and iOS. One app uses ActiveLens augmented reality technology to bring the pages of the book to life. The second app works with Google Cardboard to provide a unique virtual reality experience of an Iron Age Round House.
Experience History like never before with ActiveLens augmented reality books. Using the free app you can bring the page to life with interactive 3D models, animations and videos. We believe in blending technology seamlessly into the learning experience. With this in mind we created the ActiveWorksheet, a blend of the traditional worksheet and cutting edge augmented reality technology.
Using the free apps for Android and iOS you can bring the worksheets to life with video, audio, 3D models and animations. You can even visit the past yourself with the amazing virtual reality apps for use with Google Cardboard. Words can’t describe how powerful this new resource is, so watch our demonstration video here, or download the sample app today.
