Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument located in England that was likely built between 3000 and 1520 BC. It is made of stones that are each about 13 feet hight and 7 feet wide. The stones are arranged in an inner and outer circle.
Each stone weighs around 25 tons, which is as much as two school buses! No one knows how the Neolithic people moved the huge stones to the area or how they were able to arrange them in the post-and-lintel construction.
Another mystery is why Stonehenge was built. Some theories are that it was a burial ground, religious place or used for predicting when the seasons would change. What do you think?
Our art piece today is smaller than our typical size and this means the kids had to adjust the scale of their drawings accordingly. They used watercolours to complete this simple but striking rendition of one of history’s great wonders!
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
