One of the most interesting stories of Early Man is Otzi the Iceman! Students love learning about Otzi and where he was found, examining the theories behind what happened to him, and based on their research, coming to their own conclusions. It’s the perfect CSI-type activity to engage students in the learning, research, and writing process!
Use this lesson towards the end of your Early Man unit to make 6th grade social studies rock!
As fun as this activity is, you’ll probably love that it requires NO PREP even more! All you need to do is print and go!
Paper AND digital versions of activities where students get to:
– Explore what happened to Otzi the Caveman using a custom website
– Explore of the four scientific theories and evaluate each
– Watch a documentary about the Otzi Investigation and summarize
