Our Year 6 students were making clay oracle bones that link to their CCS history topic on Ancient China. They had to create their own oracle bone and then engrave it with Ancient Chinese characters. Oracle bones were important as they were used in Ancient China to predict the future. In the lesson, they were also asked these essential questions : 1. What can be learned about an ancient society by studying artifacts? 2. What makes humans want to predict the future?3. Is it possible to predict the future?
