Anyhow let us see what we can encounter: Try to find stones that look like fragments from bigger parts and search for stones that splinter if you hit them with another stone. ​ The big stone should perfectly match your hand. This stone will be your __hammer tool__ (see [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Knapping|flintknapping on Wikipedia]]). It should have different kind of sharp edges and corners, and it should be //hard//. You will use it to hit the smaller stone pieces and transform those into __arrow heads__ (like the ones that you can [[https://​www.amazon.de/​10-kleine-Pfeilspitzen-Steinzeit-Nachbau/​dp/​B009Q8OTMW|buy from Amazon]]). Bring your stones to the next meeting ​on [[http://​www.felix-beck.de/​nyuad/​teaching/​doku.php?​id=men_machines_11-01-16|Thursday]] ​and take them to our weekend trip! +Collect one big and 10 smaller stones.
