The toolkit for Woodland people contained many of the same items used by previous groups, such as spear points, knives, modified flakes and hammerstones. The mano and metate were used to process plant materials. Spears and nets were now used for fishing.
At the end of the Woodland period people begin to use a new tool, the bow and arrow. The bow and arrow was an effective tool for individual hunters. The projectile points, or arrowheads, that archaeologists find are smaller than those used for spears by previous groups. Abraders, sometimes used for straightening arrow shafts, are also found.
